With major events cancelling across UK and Europe over the past few days, we know that many in our community are asking questions about this year’s MEMX2020 in London.

MEMX 2020 was due to take place on 14th May, however due to the Coronavirus situation we have taken the decision to postpone the event until 8th October (the planned date for our annual digital focused national conference and exhibition – Digital Excellence 2020). Digital Excellence 2021 will now take place on 11th March 2020.

We’re very grateful for the ongoing support of our exhibitors and delegates who continue to register and plan for the conference and we’ve not experienced any substantial impacts so far.

The MemberWise team remains in close contact with our delivery stakeholders in London, as well as monitoring the situation with authorities including Public Health England. As this unprecedented situation is changing every day, we remain watchful but also focused on delivering what is an extremely important day for the Membership and Association Sector.

Mindful of our duty of care, we’re also carefully considering and consulting with experts on what the appropriate sanitary, health and other measures should be on the day. We assure you that all appropriate measures will be in place at MEMX 2020.

COVID-19 is presenting large events, like MEMX 2020, with an unprecedented challenge. The MemberWise team are passionate believers in, and advocates for, the power/inspiration our popular conferences and events deliver. Like you, we know that the negative long-term impact of speculation, hype and over-reaction could be damaging. We believe a balanced approach is currently required by delegates, exhibitors and partners.

We feel strongly that it is our collective responsibility to focus on the facts and to act with common sense and sound judgement, taking the advice of the relevant authorities and scientists.

Please keep checking this page (we suggest you bookmark). We’ll be updating it as the situation evolves and making sure it contains links to the most reliable COVID19 related resources.

We look forward to welcoming you to MEMX 2020 in London on  8th October and wish you, your membership body or business, your members and your families good wishes and resilience in the months to come.
