Clia has postponed its upcoming conference “until further notice” amid the ongoing coronavirus outbreak.
There were hundreds of delegates due to attend the Clia Conference 2020 in Southampton from 26-28 April.
“We take our responsibility for the health and safety of our delegates, as well as the crew and passengers onboard the ships we visit, very seriously,” said Andy Harmer, Clia’s UK and Ireland director.
“With that in mind, it is with a heavy heart that we must postpone this year’s conference until further notice.
“The team at Clia deeply regrets these circumstances however, as always, our number one priority is health and safety.”
