It is with great regret that we have to confirm that BIBA 2020 is cancelled.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment to you and we would like to formally thank you for the support and patience you have shown us. The cancellation is however necessary for reasons which we are all profoundly aware of, and which are beyond our control.
Since the seriousness of the spread of Coronavirus became apparent, we have hoped that its trajectory would be such that BIBA 2020 would not be affected. It is clear now that this is not the case and we simply cannot, proceed with the event, particularly in circumstances that would put the health of many thousands of people at risk.
We have investigated postponing the event until later in 2020 but unfortunately this is simply not possible.
We are fully committed to continuing to serve our members and to campaign on issues for the good of the whole insurance sector including managing, in insurance terms, the current health crisis the world is facing.
We hope to see you at BIBA 2021 which we will work to make even better than before.
