The UK Sheet Plant Association Committee have taken the decision to cancel the forthcoming SPA Conference and H&S Forum, due to take place on 8th June in Tewksbury.
“Having taken advice and reading expert opinion it would seem that the height of this COVID-19 Coronavirus outbreak in the UK is likely to be Mid May – End of June, it would therefore seem prudent to postpone/cancel this Conference and reschedule it for the Autumn when hopefully the virus will have run its course,” states Tim Gray, Chairman of the SPA. “I trust you respect the reasoning behind this decision and we will be in contact with all Members as soon as we have earmarked a new date for this Industry Event.”
He concludes, “The health and safety of our members, their colleagues and families is our greatest priority. In light of the growing concerns around the developing Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are closely following the official advice given by the UK Government and Public Health England.”
