Aidan Mercer, Marketing Director, bSI said “we are of course hugely disappointed to not be going to Rome in March but with the uncertainty we all face we felt the responsibility to move it to another virtual event. We have decided to make this event shorter by one week and only charge a processing fee for tickets which is what it costs us to host the event. We hope this next summit is as valuable as the last few have been and we hope to see a large turnout again”.
