Business Festival Postponed
It is with great regret that we have to announce our decision to defer the Marlow Business Festival.
Planned for the weekend of 26-29 March, it has become increasingly apparent that asking people to join us in group events and seminars is incompatible with supporting businesses who are advising their employees against such activity.
The past few days have seen a significant increase in plans to contain the Coronavirus in the UK. We are not, at the moment, seeing infection in significant numbers, certainly not here in Marlow. Nor is there any official advice to halt events, particularly ones of the size we are planning. However, forecasters are predicting an escalation in the incidence of infection that may coincide directly with our own event.
We have therefore decided it is better to risk being seen as over-cautious than face the prospect of putting people in a difficult position later in the month.
A new date for the Festival is being sought. Yet to be confirmed, we are already working with our venues, speakers and other organisers to confirm a suitable replacement date. An announcement about which will be made very soon.
Tickets already held by people who have registered for one or more of our events will remain valid when we announce the new dates. However, anyone with a ticket for a paid event that they either cannot, or who will no longer wish to attend, will be offered a full refund.
If you are in this position, a refund can already be sought, using the links to Eventbrite via which you originally registered. Alternatively, keep an eye out for personal emails with more detailed instructions which we are endeavouring to send out over the next few days.
Thank you for your interest. We do hope you will return once we have the dates finalised. In the meantime, however, we will leave the details up anyway. So you know a bit more about what to expect.
Our timetable of events is evolving. So, here's what's planned so far - with links to find out more and/or when you can get tickets if you fancy joining in.
But more is being added on a daily basis. Check back soon if you haven't (yet) spotted anything of interest. And do get in touch if you have an idea for an event you'd like to get organised and added to this year's Festival.
