CANCELLED | 2020 ACCIS ANNUAL CONFERENCE
New date: 16 June 2021
Announcement on Covid-19:
2020 Annual Conference CANCELLED
2021 Annual Conference: 16 June 2021
In the past few weeks, we have been closely monitoring the situation in Europe with respect to Covid-19 (new Coronavirus) to assess the risks associated with our Annual Conference.
On 17 March 2020, the Belgian government announced new far-reaching measures to combat the coronavirus, banning all gatherings. The new measures are in place from 18 March, running at least until April 19. Several other European countries have been placed in lock down to counter the further spread of the virus.
Furthermore all Schengen Area Member States - including Belgium - have closed off their external borders starting 17 March. This measure will last for at least a period of 30 days.
As a result, the Conference cannot take place as planned and we decided to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference.
In the meantime, we are glad to inform you that the 2021 ACCIS Annual Conference will take place on 16 June 2021 in Brussels. We are still awaiting very final confirmation from our host – the National Bank of Belgium, that we are planning to secure in the next months.
We intend to review the 2020 programme according to the new political developments and context. We will still make sure to offer you interesting sessions and timely discussions.
We will provide you with more information later in the year and we look forward to your participation in 2021.
