COVID-19 - CANCELLATION AND POSTPONEMENT OF SUMMER CONFERENCE
In response to the latest Government advice around COVID-19, the CUBO Board had taken the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 Summer Conference and Awards.
The decision was not taken lightly and had the support of our hosts, Queen's University Belfast. Current projections indicate that the outbreak is unlikely to be contained for some time, and the health and well-being of our attendees is paramount. With new limitation on travel and public gatherings, we are postponing now to avoid further uncertainty and allow everyone involved to suspend preparations for this event.
Our intention is to move the 2020 Conference and Awards to later in the year, holding a larger Winter Conference in December and returning to Belfast in the summer of 2021.
In light of our decision to postpone the awards ceremony, entries for the CUBO Awards will now be accepted up to the end of May 2020.
We are working hard to make the necessary changes to the conference arrangements and will communicate fully to members, partners and all stakeholders in the next week. We are very grateful for your understanding and patience until then.
We are heartened by the on-going support and knowledge sharing among the CUBO community during this difficult time.
CUBO Chair and CEO, 17 March 2020.
