Event postponed:

Please note that although there is no ban or UK Government restriction on international conference attendance, as a precaution we have taken the difficult decision to postpone the AFC 2020 meeting.  A number of companies have imposed travel restrictions on employees and in order to maximise the attendance and benefits of the meeting it should be delayed until later in the year.

MOD and the EI are currently in discussion with the venue to secure a date in early October. Once this is finalised and confirmed we will publish the new dates.
