12/03/2020

Message from ICC Secretariat 12 March 2020:

In light of the current outbreak of COVID-19 around the world, the Secretariat has to inform you that the ICC Banking Commission Annual Meeting in Dubai originally scheduled on 20-23 April 2020 will be rescheduled. The safety of the participants, sponsors and speakers is our foremost concern and was the main trigger of this decision.  We will work closely with the Chairs of the various Workgroups and Task Force to find an alternative solution to carry on with the programme of the ICC Banking Commission. We will be in touch with you all once relevant information will be made available.

It is a decision jointly made by ICC Banking Commission Executive committee, and the ICC Secretariat in consultation with the local host organization, ICC UAE and Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry. 

The ICC Secretariat is fully committed to ensure the safety and health of our community and this rescheduling will enable us to provide the experience that our members, partners, and attendees deserve, in a safe environment.

Please note that all registrations will be offered a full refund.
