While large events are currently still permitted in Wales and England, a significant number of European nations including Ireland, France and Italy as well as Scotland have prohibited large gatherings of people both indoors and outdoors.
The most recent event to reschedule was The IPAF Summit & IAPAs 2020.
Peter Douglas, CEO & MD of IPAF, said, “While it hasn’t yet been confirmed by authorities in the UK that events and meetings such as the IPAF Summit & IAPAs should be cancelled or postponed, event organisers the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and KHL have jointly taken what we feel is the responsible decision at this time.
“We trust that all event attendees understand why IPAF and KHL have come to this decision; we do hope that those who have already booked to attend will appreciate the clarity and maximum advanced notice we have tried to provide in moving the date.
“Anyone who was booked to join us for the event will have their booking honoured on the alternative date; a full refund will be made to anyone unable to attend the rescheduled event or who wishes to cancel attendance at this time.”
