IPIA and BAPC postpone Spring Conference

IPIA and BAPC postpone Spring Conference

The IPIA and BAPC have made the decision to postpone their joint Spring Conference ‘Where do we go from here?‘ until later in the year. The event was due to be held on Thursday, March 19th at The Shendish Manor Hotel, Hemel Hempstead.

This decision was made after several sponsors, partners and speakers shared with the IPIA and BAPC their Head Office directives confirmed that due to the spread of the Covid-19 Coronavirus they are not permitted to attend gatherings or meetings and to restrict all business travel until further notice.

Both organisations understand and respect this decision to prioritise the health and safety of all, and understand the need to be sensible about how this impacts their ability to deliver the quality of event that their members and the industry have come to expect from them.

All Conference bookings will be transferred to the new date and a new confirmation issued. Those who are unable to attend on the new date can either credit their ticket against another event, or be issued a refund.

The IPIA and BAPC will continue to monitor the situation with their sponsors, partners and speakers and will announce a new date as soon as they possibly can. The venue will remain the same – The Shendish Manor Hotel, Hemel Hempstead.

Whilst the UK risk level of coronavirus has been increased from low to moderate, the risk to individuals has not changed at this stage and remains low. Consequently, IPIA and BAPC are monitoring the situation but at the moment it is their intention to carry on with their participation with the B2B Marketing Expo on the 25th-26th March at London’s ExCeL Exhibition Centre, unless they receive contrary advice from the WHO. They will continue to keep members informed.
