The congress is being rescheduled for June 2021. Attendees who have booked already and other partners are encouraged to contact [email protected] for further details.

Organisation president Tom Goddard says, "COVID-19 is now officially designated a pandemic by the World Health Organisation and is impacting out-of-home companies worldwide. Therefore, we had no option but to cancel our June gathering and postpone to 2021. We felt it best to make the decision at this time to remove uncertainty for attendees and our partners."

"This is the first congress we have cancelled in 61 years, but it's clearly right to put the health and wellbeing of our members and others first. In the meantime, the organisation will continue to promote the global industry as energetically as ever," adds Goddard.

"Our very best wishes go to everyone in the global out-of-home community as we all deal with this difficult time," concludes Goddard.
