Published on 02 May 2020

In a message to all ILAB affiliates, the organisers wrote on 2 May 2020:

"Dear Colleagues,

It is with great disappointment that we announce the cancellation of Firsts 2020. For the past few weeks, The ABA management have been in discussions with the venue, Battersea Evolution, over our cancellation terms. This week we finally came to an amical agreement for cancelling the fair. Ultimately the safety of our exhibitors and visitors is our top priority.

We will be running a highlights based virtual book fair on the Firsts London website, which will launch June 5. 

We look forward to bringing you a refreshed and exciting London summer fair in 2021."

If you wish to contact the ABA Office, please contact ABA Secretary and Fair Manager, Ms Riley Grant via email here 

The FIRSTS London website will be updated soon.
