|With deep regret, this event has been postponed until 24-25 November 2020
Statement from ISFM
Unfortunately, due to the current situation in Hong Kong, International Cat Care has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2019 ISFM/CVE Asia Pacific Feline Congress.
As I’m sure many of you will have seen, the demonstrations and riots have escalated over the past couple of days, with pro-democracy protestors clashing with police in the vicinity of the congress hotel. The situation remains highly volatile and with local council elections due to take place on the 23rd and 24th November, there is an increased chance of further violent clashes. The UK’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office have now issued a statement expressing serious concern over the escalating violence.
Please be assured this decision has not been made lightly and we’re very disappointed to be cancelling the congress. However, in light of the most recent developments and for the unpredictability to come, the safety of our staff and our delegates must be of the utmost importance.
The congress has been rescheduled for the 24th and 25th November 2020, but the programme, the congress location and venue, the New World Millennium Hotel in Hong Kong will remain the same. Click here for details.
If you are a registered delegate to this year’s event, we would like to offer you the opportunity to transfer your ticket to the rescheduled dates in November next year. Alternatively, we can provide you with a full refund. Please complete this form by Friday, 22nd November to let us know you’ve received this notification and to indicate your preference for a transfer or refund.
Like you, we were really looking forward to getting together in Hong Kong next week, so please accept our sincere apologies for any disappointment and inconvenience this decision may cause.
With best wishes and until next year …
