With the WHO declaring COVID-19 a pandemic, we have had a number of insurance companies and vendors approach us regarding our intentions for the 2020 tradeshow.
Everyone is taking this situation very seriously and we have learned that some companies have already implemented a policy that would restrict their staff from traveling, having face-to-face meetings and attending public functions of 100+ people.
The London Claims Association has now been forced to look at our options with respect to our March 26th event as it should be everyone’s collective responsibility to ensure safety and limit the spread of COVID-19.
Therefore, after much discussion, we decided that the fallout we would experience from our vendor partners and insurance professionals would be much worse than the disappointment of a postponement, if someone contracted the illness from attending our event.
We collectively feel that postponing the tradeshow is the responsible and right thing to do at this time.
Over the next few weeks, we will be providing you with an update.
Thank you very much for you continued support and understanding.
