EUBC Statement Regarding the Postponement of AIBA European Forum in Assisi27 February 2020
Due to the recent spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus) in Europe and Italy and based on recommendations of EUBC, AIBA has taken a decision to postpone the AIBA European Forum, which was scheduled to take place on February 29, 2020 in Assisi, Italy. Despite the absence of COVID-19 cases in Assisi and the region of Umbria, a number of countries around the world have imposed quarantine measures for persons arriving from Italy. Additionally, there is an increased risk of Italian towns being closed for quarantine, which could seriously disrupt travel plans of forum delegates and guests. With the health and wellbeing of EUBC Members in mind, AIBA and EUBC will now look for another opportunity to stage this important event.
