IPBA 2020 conference delayed by six months over COVID-19 concerns

The Inter-Pacific Bar Association 30th annual conference, which had been scheduled to take place in Shanghai, from April 20th to 23rd, has been delayed by six months and will now be held from October 18th to 21st. Organisers have cited member concerns over the novel strain of coronavirus COVID-19, as well as governmental and travel restrictions designed to limit transmission of the virus as factors in having to make a decision to postpone now.

The conference organisers have said that the programme in October will remain the same and that delegates who had already registered will have their registration automatically transferred. Organisers have said they will contact hotels to manage arrangements.

The IPBA full comment is available here.
