About the Event

With the ever changing and growing ban on large-scale events and the current travel restrictions in place around the world, the World Health Organization (WHO) moved to declare the COVID-19 outbreak as an official Pandemic. Our priority is the health and welfare of our members and delegates attending our events, therefore ACA has made the decision to postpone this event until later in the year.

We are currently exploring options for July/August. This decision has been taken with the utmost consideration and health of all who were planning to attend this seminar and we ask your patience and understanding as we work together to make the necessary arrangements for this change.

We understand these changes may impact your plans and we will offer a full refund or provide a credit/transfer to those who have already registered.
