    In view of the Government’s latest advice re avoiding “non-essential” contact, the EMGS has made the decision to cancel expoEM Spring. We realise that this will cause disappointment to many people but the Society is of the firm belief that it would be foolish to ignore the advice and go ahead with the show.
