In a few weeks time we would have been enjoying the UK virtual annual meet up in Manchester. It goes without saying that our original plans had to be postponed until September 2020, and we were looking forward to seeing old and new faces later on this year.
The situation we find ourselves in has become more severe and lasted longer than we anticipated, at the time of postponement we could not have predicted the world wide effect of Covid 19 and the toll it has taken. Therefore with the medical advice, job losses and pay cuts, family commitments in mind we have taken the decision to cancel the in person UK virtual meetup 2020. We had some great plans for our meet up and are as disappointed that we are unable to enjoy them with our great members, but we will be back better than ever in 2021!
However! All is not lost. We are pleased to announce the “UK virtual – virtual meetup 2020” on the 4th/5th July. A weekend of events, shaped by our members, live on Discord. Please read below for the itinerary and for those who wish to attend, please fill in the survey linked below.
Just to confirm, there is a survey to be filled in!
