The IPAF Sum­mit & IAPAS 2020 event, sched­uled to be held in Lon­don, UK, ini­tially resched­uled to 8 Oc­to­ber ow­ing to the world­wide coro­n­avirus out­break, has now been post­poned to 2021. It will go ahead at the orig­i­nal venue on 18 March 2021.

Event or­gan­is­ers the In­ter­na­tional Pow­ered Ac­cess Fed­er­a­tion (IPAF) and KHL have an­nounced they wilev hold the events over un­til 2021 to al­low at­ten­dees to plan with greater cer­tainty and to min­imise dis­rup­tions that might pre­vent peo­ple from trav­el­ling. The event will still be held at the Mil­len­nium Glouces­ter Ho­tel in Kens­ing­ton, Lon­don

Peter Dou­glas, CEO & MD of IPAF, said: “While we hope that by Oc­to­ber coro­n­avirus is un­der con­trol, it’s 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’ve made this de­ci­sion and hope the event will be a great suc­cess in 2021. We trust that at­ten­dees un­der­stand why IPAF and our event part­ners KHL 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,”he added.
