Unless otherwise advised, our events are taking place as scheduled. Please note that terms and conditions apply in this instance. If you are unable to attend the event you have registered for, we will email you a link to the Speakers presentations after the event. We would encourage you to continue to use our networking platform to contact other attendees, this will be available for one month post event. 
We are happy to welcome customers who wish to participate in our events and who are not impacted by travel restrictions.  Travel advice and entry guidelines varies from country to country.  Our event attendees are encouraged to check the latest travel advice and entry guidelines for the country to which they wish to travel before arrangements.  Several countries have imposed travel restrictions to and from mainland China. 
We strongly advise attendees to review and follow the World Health Organisations's standard recommendations for the general public to reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses:  
  • Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water;
  • When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands;
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who has fever and cough;
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider;
  • When visiting live markets in areas currently experiencing cases of novel coronavirus, avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals; and
  • The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, in accordance with good food safety practices.
