AUDE 2020 Conference update

Dear Delegate, 
I am writing to you with an update on the AUDE 2020 Annual Conference, following correspondence last week detailing the postponement of the event. We have been working closely with AUDE, the Conference Steering Group and the AUDE Executive to put together new dates for the AUDE 2020 Annual Conference.

We are pleased to announce that the Birmingham Conference will now take place as the AUDE 2021 Annual Conference on 11th – 14th April 2021. We have had a fantastic response from all conference stakeholders who are also facing uncertain times, and we want to work together to deliver the same event at a different time.

Despite the gestures of goodwill from suppliers there are still irrecoverable costs incurred by the now rearranged 2020 event. We are sure that you are all aware that AUDE relies on the income from the Annual Conference to operate, and to fund additional projects, and that the cancellation of conference so close to the event means that we are obliged to return all of the delegate fees.  
AUDE want to give attendees two options for their 2020 conference booking –

  1. Roll your full booking over to the 2021 conference and secure your place at the same price as this year. Please note that you would be subject to both of the attached Terms and Conditions in this instance and any funds already received will be retained by AUDE for the 2021 conference.
  2. A full refund for your conference place at the 2020 conference. Please note you would be required to go through the booking process in December 2020 for a place at the 2021 conference.

Please can all booking contacts submit their preference via this survey before the end of the day on 30th March 2020.

We appreciate that some of you may not know your availability for the 2021 dates yet – to allow flexibility there will still be the option to change your mind and request a refund up until Friday 4th December 2020, when bookings will launch for the 2021 conference.

Please note that this does not apply to accommodation bookings that aren’t part of a full conference package. Cancellation of these will need to be made by 30th March 2020.

Please see below Terms and Conditions for more information:

After 4th December 2020, all bookings will be subject to the 2021 conference Terms and Conditions:

Thank you so much for your continued support and engagement with AUDE at this difficult time. We hope to see you in Birmingham in April 2021.
