Xpo cancelled, LAM replaces it

Posted: September 14, 2009

UK fetish exhibition The Xpo, scheduled for October 3rd – 4th, has been cancelled by the organisers – however an alternative shopping event has already sprung up to take its place. The organisers of London Fetish Weekend and London Alternative Market have joined forces to put on a special London Alternative Market during London Fetish Weekend on Saturday 3rd (12.00 – 7.00) and Sunday 4th (12.00 – 6.00) October at the National Hotel, Russell Square, London, which will be in a private space with its own entrance.

The National Hotel is said to be easily accessible from six tube stations, two train stations and buses stop right outside. Businesses wishing to trade at the event should contact stalls@londonalternativemarket.com

Regarding the cancellation of The Xpo, a statement on event’s website says: “It with great regret that we are announcing the cancellation of The Xpo this year. This has been an extremely hard decision for us but we feel it is the right thing to do for both exhibitors and visitors. Various factors have combined to make it difficult for exhibitors to commit to The Xpo as far in advance as they normally would. The London Fetish Weekend will still be going ahead with a whole host of events every evening from Friday 2nd to Sunday 4th October [and] The Xpo will be back next year on 2nd and 3rd October 2010.”
