POSTPONED – MDBC / EUMCCI: ICW Sustainability Leaders

March 19, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 3:45 pm

Dear MDBC members,

After careful consideration, it has been decided that the upcoming “MDBC / EUMCCI: ICW Sustainability Leaders” that was to take place on Thursday, 19 March 2020, will be postponed.  This is due to the high number of expected guests at this event, and in view of the current health concerns and feedback from concerned stakeholders.  MDBC and EUMCCI put the health and safety of our speakers, delegates, and visitors at the highest importance and view the recent World Health Organisation’s declaration of Covid – 19 as a Public Health Emergency seriously.  We sincerely feel that this action taken is in the best interest of all participants and will remove any uncertainties due to Covid – 19.  The postponement will also allow us to continue with our plans to deliver an exceptional and informative event.

We will announce this program again when the situation improves and we find a suitable time to hold the event.

Our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Thank you.

With best regards,
MDBC Secretariat
