To all our customers, sponsors, and supporters,

We hope you are staying safe and well in these challenging times.

Ensuring the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, partners & staff is our top priority.

IMFORMED continues to monitor the situation, assimilating advice, and assessing contingencies regarding the latest developments.


On balance of evidence to date and feedback from the market we have decided that the right decision is to postpone the following Forums:
