Talk about three days being a long time in politics. Try three days as an event organiser in the face of COVID 19!
Further to the position statement we published on 12th March, the coronavirus situation has moved on rapidly. As further information and analysis comes to light, it is becoming increasingly clear that if we are to avoid overwhelming the health system, social distancing is going to be the norm for the foreseeable future.
The ban on large events of over 500 people is looking increasingly irrelevant. As are the travel restrictions. Most companies are already imposing far stricter conditions on their staff than the government has done so far.
As a result, PASA/BTTB will be cancelling or postponing all physical events and round-tables until further notice.
Any of our sponsors, speakers, delegates or members seeing this, please be aware that we will send you relevant information in the next day or so.
I will provide updates as further information comes to light.
Thanks and stay well,
