On behalf of Smithers I regret to inform you that our E-PACK Europe conference scheduled for 8-9 December in Amsterdam will now only take place in an online format.
We were on track to run a successful in-person event, but increasing COVID related concerns has led to large numbers of delegates and speakers cancelling their in-person participation. This has been especially pronounced in the last few days.
Please also accept my apologies for the late nature of the cancellation. The Smithers team have run a number of successful conferences over the past few weeks, so recent events have clearly significantly impacted our clients sense of comfort and sentiment.
All delegates who planned to attend in-person will automatically be sent online login details for the event next week and your in-person ticket will automatically be transferred to 2022, as per our terms and conditions.
Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any further questions.
We have spoken to the Leonardo Royal Amsterdam Hotel and they will refund the cost of any reserved accommodation. Please contact the hotel directly via firstname.lastname@example.org at your earliest convenience to cancel your booking free of charge.
We appreciate your patience and understanding during these difficult times, and look forward to an enjoyable and thought-provoking online event. I apologise again for any inconvenience caused.
EU Operations Director
