MEDIA RELEASE

Geneva 13 March 2020

The Investment Migration Forum, Postponed following WHO Advice

On 11 March 2020, the World Health Organisation stated that the current Corona Virus (Covid-19) is now classified as a worldwide pandemic. The organising committee of the Investment Migration Forum, has therefore taken the decision that the event will be postponed to a later date in October or November 2020.
Bruno L’ecuyer, Chief Executive of the IMC remarks ‘We take the safety of our community very seriously. It would be irresponsible to hold such an important event at a time of such uncertainty. We urge everyone to follow the guidelines and protocols put forth by public health officials.’

For those who have purchased delegates passes or are partnering, the IMC will honour all purchases for the event.

We are working with the incredible city of Brussels and our partners to finalise details for the new date and will share information regarding contingency plans in the coming weeks. The event registration portal remains open and regular updates will be posted on the IMC homepage.
