Sadly, with the disruption of COVID-19 and in line with Ministry of Health advice we are unable to go ahead with INTERFACEXpo 2020. In considering the health and safety of everyone involved, we are postponing our three conferences in May and all registrations for INTERFACEXpo 2020 have been cancelled.
We appreciate everyone’s commitment to INTERFACEXpo and INTERFACE Magazine. We’re sorry for any inconvenience and disruption this may cause.
We have been busy investigating options to potentially delay until later in the year. However, it’s just not practical, as well as the uncertainty that’s out there at present. Therefore, our intention is to focus on hosting our events next year. We will announce later in the year our plans for 2021.
You can keep up-to-date with the latest advice and information with our daily Covid-19 Update.

One activity that is still in full swing is our Minecraft competition … and this year there’s a twist. As well as three student age categories, there’s a teacher section, too. We’ve teamed up with Microsoft and MOTAT, and the challenge is to ‘Build a Better Future’; for teachers, we want you to tell us how you’re using Minecraft in your teaching. More details here.
