Don’t give up, just showUP

The premiere home and gift retail trade event taking place in the Benelux region, showUP, has been rescheduled for September 27-28 2020 and will take place at the Brabanthallen exhibition hall in the city of Den Bosch in the South of Holland.

Event organiser, Daan van Trigt, comments: “After consultation with the venue and local authorities, it is now definitely decided that it is not possible to organise showUP on 30 and 31 August. We have decided on a new date for the autumn edition of showUP, which will be September 27-28 at Brabanthallen in Den Bosch”.

The decision to relocate showUP from its usual venue in Amsterdam to Den Bosch was originally taken so it could coincide with one of Europe’s biggest dance festivals. Instead showUP is now focusing strongly on the health and safety of exhibitors as Europe finds a way out of Covid 19 lockdown. The good thing is that the city of Den Bosch is also convenient for transport, being close to Eindhoven airport and well connected by road and rail.

“The starting point for us is that visitors and exhibitors can meet again safely after a period of restrictions”, Daan adds.

“We will now carefully monitor the new guidelines and 1.5-meter protocols for organizing trade shows. In a few weeks we will present you the definite plans for the upcoming showUP, but for now, mark September 27 and 28 in the agenda!”

Hertogenbosch, familiarly known as Den Bosch these days, is a wonderful city full of historic buildings, and museums, great shops and welcoming cafés and restaurants. Go for a stroll and discover the medieval architecture, take a boat tour of the centuries-old canal system, or go for a bicycle ride along the fortresses. Den Bosch has many beautiful attractions on offer. Even more importantly, it has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Jazz cafés, little restaurants, trendy bars – Den Bosch natives definitely know how to enjoy the good life.
