Dear all

Like everyone, we have been monitoring Covid-19 developments closely; and consulting frequently with our conference venue, the Royal College of Physicians (RCP) in London.

It is now clear that the Indie Summit cannot take place in May 2020, as scheduled.

Many similar conferences have postponed their dates until September / October. This was our first thought also. However, this is already a heavily demanded period for conferences and when we see numbers doubled, as events already scheduled begin to clash with events being newly re-scheduled, we realise that there will simply be too many events happening at the same time.

For example: the three major annual global PR agency conferences are now planned to happen in consecutive weeks. And indeed, the only dates in H2 2020 which the RCP was able to offer us, directly clashed with London’s “Advertising Week Europe.”

So we have decided to follow the path of the lawyers (specifically, the Global Advertising Lawyers Alliance) and move our event to H1 2021.

Subject to contractual agreement with our venue – and a reality check with our speakers, sponsors and other essential stakeholders – we will postpone the Indie Summit 2020 until May 26th and 27th 2021. Please save the dates!

If you are a speaker or sponsor OR if you have bought a ticket for Indie Summit 2020, we will contact you individually.

If conditions improve by September / October, we will resume our programme of live member events. These will be smaller than the Indie Summit, but they will be of equal quality.

For now, we hope you appreciate our webinars and our daily newsletter updates. If you are not receiving these and would like to, please email stephanie.fox@thenetworkone.com and we will add you to our mailing list.
