We did not come to this decision lightly, but unfortunately this was our only option. At least a third of the participants in both events come from medium to high risk countries/regions. We already started to see an acceleration of policies implemented by universities restricting travel for students and teachers. What’s more, Government policies are hard to predict but were expected to further restrict travel over the coming weeks. Lastly, our corporate partners also started restricting international travel and gatherings, which meant that speakers could no longer participate, and company visits that were part of our program were being cancelled.
For Inchainge Connect this means that the next edition will take place from May 3rd – May 7th, 2021. However, we are exploring online possibilities. Additionally, we are planning to organize an event in November of this year. As soon as more details are known we will update you by email and also keep an eye on LinkedIn for the latest news and developments!
On behalf of Inchainge and Windesheim University of applied sciences we send our regrets and apologies for this unexpected postponement. We also apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you, and we hope you understand the remarkable nature of this recent global health issue.
If you have any specific questions don’t hesitate to contact us. We will keep you updated on further developments!
