The IPAF Summit and awards dinner that had been re-scheduled for October 8th has now been postponed until March 18th next year.
Held at the same venue in London, this will be the first time the Summit has been held in the UK since 2017. The aim of the move is to allow attendees to plan with greater certainty and to minimise disruptions that might prevent people from travelling.
IPAF chief executive Peter Douglas said: “While we hope that by October coronavirus is under control, it is fair to assume there may still be restrictions on large gatherings and international travel. It therefore makes sense to postpone until 2021, when hopefully there will be more clarity about how to manage the risk from this virus. Economies and companies around the world are starting to open up again, but it will not be an immediate return to business as usual. To ensure everyone hoping to attend the IPAF Summit & IAPAs can plan with maximum certainty, we have made this decision and hope the event will be a great success in 2021. We trust that attendees understand why we have decided to postpone until next year.”
“Anyone who booked to join us will have their reservations honoured on the alternative date in 2021, a full refund will be offered to anyone who is unable to attend the rescheduled event or who wishes to cancel. Anyone who has booked accommodation is advised to contact the Millennium Gloucester Hotel directly to reconfirm.”
