The IPAF Summit & IAPAs 2020, scheduled to be held in London, UK, on 23 April 2020, has been postponed and will now be held on 8 October 2020, owing to ongoing concerns over the worldwide coronavirus outbreak. It will be held at the original venue, the Millennium Gloucester Hotel in Kensington, London.
Peter Douglas, CEO & MD of IPAF, says: "While it hasn’t yet been confirmed by authorities in the UK that events and meetings such as the IPAF Summit & IAPAs should be cancelled or postponed, event organisers the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and KHL have jointly taken what we feel is the responsible decision at this time.
"We trust that all event attendees understand why IPAF and KHL have come to this decision; we do hope that those who have already booked to attend will appreciate the clarity and maximum advanced notice we have tried to provide in moving the date.
"Anyone who was booked to join us for the event will have their booking honoured on the alternative date; a full refund will be made to anyone unable to attend the rescheduled event or who wishes to cancel attendance at this time.
"Anyone who has booked hotel accommodation at the venue is advised to contact the Millennium Gloucester directly to ensure that their reservation is reconfirmed.
"The annual IPAF Summit & IAPAs is a highlight of the worldwide powered access events calendar and we sincerely hope that those planning to attend will be able to rearrange their plans in order to join us on the new date of 8 October 2010.
"There may inevitably be some amendments to the speaker programme and/or site visits, and these will be communicated once confirmed."
