Amsterdam conference to be rescheduled over Covid-19 coronavirus concerns

IFMA Europe and Facility Management Nederland together decided to postpone their upcoming conference World Workplace Europe ’20 “Future For Facilities” to be held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands from March 18 to 20. Even though there is no imminent health risk, the organizational team agrees it is wise and prudent to postpone the event. Alternate dates will be announced as arrangements are made. In the meantime we wish to apologize for any inconvenience caused. However, we would like to emphasize that the decision to reschedule the event has been made with the utmost care for the health and safety of our conference attendees, staff speakers and exhibitors.

The Covid-19 coronavirus spreads widely and quickly, it can overwhelm local health systems in a way that the flu does not. We simply do not have enough information to fully understand its impact which is why we prefer to take the most precautionary measure we can.

IFMA Europe and Facility Management Nederland are currently looking into several options to host alternative seminar concepts. This could be an online event pending the rescheduled World Workplace Europe ’20 conference. We will keep you posted on dates and practicals. Please check our website and social media for relevant updates.

Meanwhile IFMA.org have launched an exhaustive coronavirus preparedness resource center online for any FM professionals looking for more information on the Covid-19 coronavirus. You can visit the site here.
