APCOM - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

In light of the uncertainty during the current situation, events which would normally require the meeting of APCOM members and sponsors, which are directly organised by APCOM have been cancelled or postponed until further notice.

Sadly, this includes the APCOM Conference, AGM and Awards 2020 which was due to be held in Shrigley Hall on the 16-18 September 2020.

The executive committee are concerned for the safety of our members given the uncertainty of timescales, the difficulty and uncertainty in arranging and planning events given the current restrictions and the economically and reputational danger, should an arranged conference have to be cancelled. 

APCOM gratefully relies on the support and participation of sponsors and partners to ensure that membership remains free of charge. The executive committee will continue to foster these relationships by continuing to work with sponsors to actively promote their organisations as we always have.

We will reduce the magazine production to two magazines this year and will keep contact with members through email and the APCOM website.

As soon as we are able to resume meetings and events, we will plan and inform you of these as always, and we are hoping to run some sponsor supported events later in the year.
