WHAT TO EXPECT THIS YEAR

With our 2021 Face to Face Winter Show back on, we are excited to now welcome 80,000 qualified visitors! This year, above all, it is our priority to ensure that One Of A Kind will be organized in accordance with official government and local authority guidance, venue or location-specific regulations, as well as Informa's own AllSecure Standards to protect the health and safety of our exhibitors, customers, partners and staff. This includes having proof of vaccination to attend our show. We have these guidelines and policies in-place to ensure we have a safe and successful in-person show.

To host an event in these new circumstances, it goes without saying that this year’s Winter Show will not be business as usual. While we will still bring our signature One Of A Kind magic, we are working on putting together a smaller show with fewer exhibitors, along with timed admission entry so we can manage crowds while checking proof of vaccination. Changes may also include mandatory face coverings, increased sanitization, cashless transactions, onsite booth staff limitations and daily self-assessment declarations, to address the situation as it will exist in November. 

Book With Confidence 

In registering to participate in the 2021 Winter One Of A Kind Show, you can book your participation with confidence knowing that all exhibitors will receive a full COVID-Safety plan 30 days prior to the event, which will be based on Informa AllSecure Standards, as well as local public health guidance. 

And, in the unlikely event that the Show is cancelled, you have the option to:

  • Transfer your funds to a virtual Winter event, with any difference in fees refunded.
  • Transfer your funds to any 2022 One Of A Kind events
  • Request for a refund. We will do our best to accommodate the following schedule. Please note that in special circumstances, extra information may be requested by Informa.
    Credit Card: 10-12 Weeks
    Cheque/Direct Deposit: 14-16 weeks
