Volunteer Expo is going virtual for 2021!

Volunteer Expo is going virtual for 2021!

The UK’s first national volunteering show, Volunteer Expo, will be going online from 7th – 8th 2021.

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact many aspects of our daily lives, we are making changes to Volunteer Expo 2021 in order to protect the health and wellbeing of everyone associated to the event, while still providing an impactful and meaningful show.

That is why Volunteer Expo will be going virtual for 2021, taking place on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th May.

It has been a difficult decision to postpone the live event for a second time, after 2020’s event was rescheduled for 7-9th May 2021 at the NEC Birmingham, but the safety of our visitors, exhibitors, speakers, contractors and staff is our number one priority.

Despite not being able to meet and network in person, our user-friendly and interactive online event platform will mean you can still enjoy everything Volunteer Expo has to offer from the comfort of your own home!”

Volunteering is just as crucial, if not more so, during these uncertain times, where many people are experiencing hardship. Organisations, charities and not-for-profits who provide these vital services are also at risk. That is why we remain totally committed to delivering the UK’s first national show that celebrates and showcases the impact volunteering makes.

Despite not being able to meet and network in person, our user-friendly and interactive online event platform will mean you can still enjoy everything Volunteer Expo has to offer from the comfort of your own home!

It will bring to life the immersive experience of a show including speaker sessions, Q&As, workshops, networking opportunities and a virtual exhibition.

We’re pleased that this online experience will remain free of charge to visitors, and open up Volunteer Expo to even more people from across the length and breadth of Great Britain and Ireland and beyond, who may not have made the journey to the live event.

If you have already registered to attend the live event, your registration will automatically be carried over for the 2022 live event.

Details of how to register for the 2021 online event will be available very soon, along with confirmation of the programme and exhibitor packages.

So mark your diaries and calendars for 7th and 8th May 2021 for Volunteer Expo Online, and watch this space for more exciting news as the event comes to life online!

Thank you for your support and we look forward to connecting with you soon.

Volunteer Expo is hosted by Rotary in Great Britain and Ireland.
