• AIIM Forum Europe postponed due to COVID-19

        • With minor outbreaks of COVID-19 still occurring across Europe and scientific guidance still being developed for business conferences and exhibitions, Revolution Events and The Association for Intelligent Information Management (AIIM) have pro-actively decided to postpone this year’s AIIM Forum Europe in London to Tuesday 23rd February 2021. 

          The decision is a direct response to the continued uncertainty around running large scale public gatherings even as the lockdown continues to ease. 

          Peggy Winton, President and CEO of AIIM said, “we are obviously disappointed to be postponing this year’s event, which was shaping up to be another fantastic gathering in spite of the disruption caused by Covid-19. However, we have a primary duty of care towards the safety of our delegates, exhibitors, sponsors, staff and speakers. We are also determined that AIIM Forum Europe should always deliver a high-quality experience that is not compromised by external factors. With less than three months until the original date and many IM professionals still concerned about meeting face-to-face, we feel it is better for us to defer until early-spring than to risk a slightly subdued event in November – however disappointing this may be in the short-term.” 

          Scientific opinion is still evolving on the most effective precautions to protect larger groups of people at live events and the government is aiming to issue specific guidance for business conferences and exhibitions, to reflect their huge potential for helping to kickstart the global economy. The event industry itself has proposed a wide array of innovative measures to create ‘COVID-secure’ environments – including contactless registration systems, socially distanced exhibition areas and the live streaming of popular conference sessions – and is now awaiting confirmation of the best combination to implement, following a number of pilot events in the autumn. 

          Deborah Ward-Johnstone, Group Event Director at Revolution Events added, “I would like to reassure all of our customers that we are constantly monitoring the prevailing health and safety risks for live events and we already have a range of precautions planned to reduce physical contact and proximity at our events, which we are ready to implement as soon as we get the go-ahead from the government. As always, we are one hundred per cent committed to providing highly productive opportunities for decision-makers to learn, meet and do business together – which we will now be doing on 23rd February 2021 instead of later this year.”
