PATA Singapore Chapter and co-presenter TTG Asia Media have decided to reschedule their second SG Tourism Leaders Engagement Series to a later date, in consideration of the fluid situation surrounding the ongoing Novel Coronavirus outbreak.
The event, which was supposed to be held tomorrow at Changi Experience Studio @ Jewel for an intimate-sized audience, received “overwhelming interest from registrants” as soon as it opened for registration in mid-January.
In a statement to registrants and industry colleagues, Wong Soon-Hwa, PATA Singapore Chapter chair and PATA vice chair, said: “In view of the coronavirus situation, we decided to postpone our event scheduled for tomorrow to a future date. (It) wasn’t an easy decision especially when the sign up was so good (200-plus) but we owe the duty of care to all attendees.”
Wong continued: “With support from all partners and stakeholders, including Changi Airport Group (as venue sponsor) and International Air Transport Association (as programme partner), we will stage the event at a future date to be decided and announced. It will provide a platform for all of us to come together to plan and execute post recovery measures.”
The postponement notice was first issued on February 5.
