IBC statement on coronavirus
Updated March 17, 2020
IBC2020 is proceeding as planned, 11-15 September 2020 in Amsterdam.
We are aware of the concerns that Coronavirus (Covid-19) may be causing and would like to reaffirm our commitment to delivering a safe and successful IBC2020.
IBC is monitoring the situation very closely and will take the advice of the relevant international, national, local authorities and agencies to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all involved with our event in September.
We are aware that the length and severity of the outbreak is not yet fully known and so timing will be a key factor for all stakeholders. We also appreciate that businesses will come under new pressures and a successful IBC will help the industry get back on track. Therefore, we are working hard with the supply chain to push back key deadlines to allow the maximum decision-making time for us all.
We continue to keep in close contact with the City of Amsterdam and the RAI, which is itself in contact with specialised Dutch institutions and partners, including the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment (RIVM), the Municipal Health Service (GGD), Amsterdam Council, Schiphol Airport, and KLM.
It is anticipated that the European Union health authorities will publish definitive health and safety guidelines between now and IBC2020. We will be publishing them here and will ensure that IBC2020 is fully compliant with all required regulations.
If you do have any questions or queries surrounding the event, then please either visit our FAQ page here or get in touch via email@example.com
Your personal account manager will then be in contact with you directly.
This statement was published on 17th March 2020, and will be reviewed weekly and updated as necessary.
