After considerable deliberations with the host country government in Morocco and their Board, ID4Africa 2020 will be postponed to October 28-30, 2020. The organisers say their decision was taken in view of the current global health concerns surrounding the Coronavirus, that have been posing wide-spread restrictions on travel and large gatherings which make it very difficult to organize the event on its originally scheduled date.
The organisers confirm that their priority is to deliver to a healthy, safe, and highly successful event with inclusive participation by all the stakeholders from around the world. The event will be held in the exact same venue, Palais des Congrès at Mövenpick Hotel Mansour Eddahbi.
In a statement, the new date, say the organisers, will allow them “To deliver the quality and intensity that the identity community has gotten accustomed to from our prior events, without compromise or gaps due to limitations on participation. The overall theme and thematic tracks for the conference will continue to be the same. We expect, nevertheless, that will continue to refine the program and make the updates necessary to maintain it timely.”
“I would like to thank all of our partners, speakers, sponsors, exhibitors and delegates, for their continued solidarity with the Movement. I also would like to thank the authorities in Morocco for their swift collaboration and the management at our conference venue for their cooperation. We look forward to the return to normalcy on the global stage and to seeing you all in a stronger and even better ID4Africa 2020 in Marrakesh,” said Dr. Joseph J. Atick, Executive Chairman, ID4Africa
