The CIPS Middle East Conference and Supply Management Awards 2020 on 30 June 2020 at Rosewood Abu Dhabi has been postponed - new event format or dates to be announced.

CIPS and Haymarket Media Group (who deliver events on behalf of the CIPS) have been closely monitoring the situation with regard to Coronavirus on a daily basis and the welfare of our delegates is always front of mind.

In this instance, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the event to the nearest suitable opportunity in the future or to present this as an online, virtual event.

We have not made this decision lightly but we want to ensure we can provide the best experience possible for attendees. If you have booked on the event your booking will be automatically confirmed for the revised date, or event format, which will be announced as soon as possible.   Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused and we thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions, please contact us.
