IRX 2020 postponed because of coronavirus

IRX 2020 is to be postponed until later in the year as a result of the outbreak of coronavirus in the UK, it has been announced today.

 

The event was to have been held on April 1 and 2 at the NEC in Birmingham. But the news came today that it would now be held later in the year instead. The new date will be announced in the near future.

 

Stuart Barker, portfolio director, IRE and payments at event organiser Clarion Events, said: “After consultation with stakeholders over the last few days, we have made the difficult decision to postpone IRX/eDX.

“Despite strong support from our stakeholders the increasing level of uncertainty, travel bans and individual concerns due to coronavirus mean that we would not be able to deliver the show that you would want to see.

“We know that IRX is a critical event in many participant’s calendars, providing the information, inspiration and contacts that they rely on to thrive and survive. As such we will be rescheduling the event for later this year. We look forward to announcing new dates when we’ll bring you a great programme of speakers, exhibitors, features, workshops and networking. In the meantime, our thoughts are with those who are directly affected by coronavirus.”


The event joins a growing number of exhibitions, events and launches to be postponed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.
