ADI / ADA Singapore conference postponement

Important Announcement

ADI / ADA Singapore conference postponement – 7 February 2020

We have been monitoring the situation in Singapore in relation to the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) and can confirm today (7 February), that following Singapore Ministry of Health advice, we are postponing the ADI / ADA conference, scheduled from 19-21 March 2020. The Singapore Government has raised the Disease Outbreak Response System Condition (DORSCON) level to orange and they are advising against non-essential large events.

We know you will be as disappointed as we are, but we have remained in close contact with our event organiser, SingEx and are pleased to confirm that we have re-scheduled the conference for 10-12 December 2020. We are also pleased to affirm that we are automatically carrying forward all registrations, abstracts, speakers and exhibitors, to make the change of date as seamless as possible.

We recommend, that you take the opportunity to re-schedule any flights and accommodation that you have secured.

We will be updating the website in the coming days, with further information and answers to any questions you might have.

We really appreciate your understanding and support at this time, and we know that you will all agree that the health and safety of our delegates and the wider ADI family is of utmost importance.

Our best,

Paola Barbarino, CEO, ADI  |  Jason Foo, CEO, ADA
