The Fixed Income Leaders Summit in Nashville which had been planned to take place in June 2020, has been postponed in light of the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak.

The conference organisers, WBR said in an statement: “After careful consideration, we are postponing Fixed Income Leaders Summit 2020. The health, safety and well-being of our attendees, partners and employees is paramount, and this is the only action that is within our power in order to make sure you remain healthy and safe during these uncertain times. Rescheduling this event will allow us to deliver the Fixed Income Leaders Summit experience that you are accustomed to, in a safe environment.”

The firm noted it has a difference of opinion with The Omni Hotel in Nashville which it says has been confident that the event could still take place in June, and that ‘difference in opinion’ has slowed down the negotiation of new dates but WBR notes it will communicate any updates as soon as possible.

“We recognise all of the incredibly hard work our speakers, advisors and sponsors have already put in to the program and we appreciate your continued support and willingness to work with us as we navigate this unexpected challenge,” noted WBR. “If there is one thing the business services industry is known for, it’s how to adapt to difficult circumstances, and we have been humbled by the support that we have already received.”

It also confirmed that it will move all delegate tickets and sponsorships to the new dates. As the program will remain intact, all the terms of original delegate ticket and event sponsorships will still be applicable.
