Richard Barnes

How are we responding to COVID-19?


1) Strictly following governmental advice 

We are working in line with governmental guidelines regarding mass events, large gatherings and flight restrictions, therefore we will make changes to our Forums as the situation and advice develops.


2) Developing adaptive networking solutions

  • Vetted and intimate format
    Our business model is based on smaller, more intimate gatherings of people, where attendance is highly controlled and limited to a vetted guestlist. This makes it easier for us to adjust our offering and create alternative networking opportunities as the situation develops. We are working hard to deliver Forums that provide you with both safe environments and the same networking opportunities you’ve come to expect from our Forums. 

  • Virtual Meetings
    There is no alternative to meeting face-to-face, but while it’s not possible to meet in person, we still want to find a way to keep our community together and our industry moving. Therefore, we're working on Virtual Meetings to allow you to stay connected and do business. More information on this will also follow shortly.



Any further questions?

For more clarification on our COVID-19 policy and how we intend to manage our upcoming events, please don’t hesitate to get in touch here or with your relevant Account Manager.

These are unprecedented times for us all in the travel and events industries and I would also like to take this opportunity to wish you well as I know that, just like us, you are facing difficult decisions every day. We are all in this together. We remain committed to keeping the industry moving and believe we can continue to host great events that benefit local communities, individual attendees and the industry as a whole, provided they are delivered safely and responsibly. 

Please keep checking this webpage for regular updates on our Forums and ongoing response to this evolving situation.
