It is with regret that we announce that we are cancelling our upcoming Transport of Tomorrow 2020 event that was due to be held on the 24th and 25th of March in Sydney.
Increasing concern about people’s well-being plus the need to restrict movement due to the COVID-19 pandemic make the delivery of a safe, valuable event impossible for the foreseeable future.
‘We join the growing list of organisations, including the F1 Grand Prix, ALC Forum, ATA Conference, and ADVI, which have concluded that the risks are too great to proceed with their events,’ says Ian Christensen, iMOVE Managing Director.
‘Along with our own concerns for attendee well-being, there is widespread falling confidence in the safety of public gatherings and travel to them. This has meant many speakers and registrants are understandably unable to participate.
We are obviously very disappointed to not be able to deliver as promised, and all registrants will receive a full refund shortly.’
All is not completely lost though, after all the hard work. We had locked in a well-rounded and current set of topics and great speakers in both smart mobility and freight and logistics. Over the coming weeks we will work with them to see how we can still deliver some of this content. There are already interviews with some of our speakers available to read on the iMOVE website and we aim to add more.
We apologise to everyone for this unavoidable turn of events at such short notice. We also remain committed to running similarly quality events in the future.
