Organisers behind the Home Care Awards have confirmed that the event will go ahead next week, as planned.
The Dementia, Care & Nursing Home Expo was recently postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
But the Awards, which was due to run alongside the Home Care Expo at the exhibition, will still go ahead on Tuesday, March 17.
In a statement, Stratford Projects commercial director Helen Warrilow said: “We want to reassure all our guests that the Home Care Awards is going ahead next week and that we are following the news and will act in accordance with the advice we are given.
“We ask that everyone follows the NHS guidelines and anyone who has travelled to affected areas or has come in to contact with someone with Covid-19, you are considerate and stay away.
“We are looking forward to meeting you all and celebrating this wonderful sector.”
The Home Care Awards will take place at the National Conference Centre in Solihull from 12pm on March 17.
The event will open with a drinks reception, followed by lunch, awards presentations and networking.
