Conference Postponed until 2021!

With the declaration of a state of emergency by the US Government and with the World Health Organization  reclassifying Covid-19 as a global Pandemic, ISBPE is increasingly concerned for the safety of our community and is therefore postponing this year’s conference until 2021.

We have considered having our conference online or rescheduling the conference for later in the year but, given the degree of uncertainty that we are facing as a global community, we concluded we need to postpone any further action until we have more data and a greater sense of certainty.

We will be in touch with our community about future plans and look forward to seeing everyone in 2021.
