A Message From Our President
ICS is continuing to monitor the worldwide coronavirus/COVID-19 situation and how it affects international events in our industry.
We place the safety of our delegates, associations, and staff above all else and are ready to take the necessary precautions to prevent further spread of the disease. We have carefully considered the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Public Health Agency of Canada, and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and other reputable associations to make informed decisions and the options we present to our clients.
To this end, we are continuing to work on preparing contingency plans for our clients and delegates to account for all possible eventualities. We will continue to provide updates on the status of our events both on this website and via direct communication. We remain in close, daily contact with all of our clients and other stakeholders, and are ready to provide the optimum level of service and support for whichever course of action they decide.
Where the possibility of postponement or cancellation has arisen, we have urged our clients to consider conducting virtual meetings. ICS is ready to provide a robust suite of online virtual meeting options. Our goal is to ensure that travel and medical restrictions do not inhibit us from our purpose: to connect and share with each other the vital research and data which is the entire reason we have our meetings.
Connecting people and facilitating change has always been at the core of what we do at ICS - our work continues.
