NMBS postpones 2020 conference

The builders metchant industry confetence for 2020, the NMBS All Industry Conference, has been postponed due to the ongoing effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

Originally due to take place in Sorrento from 18th – 21st June,  the event will be rescheduled for 16th-19th June 2022.

NMBS managing director Chris Hayward wrote to delegates today (April 28) to inform them of the decision which has been taken after guidance from the UK & Italian authorities and working closely with both First Event and the Hilton Sorrento Palace Hotel with regards to how it moves forward.

“The NMBS team always look forward to this event and were really excited to be running and hosting the prestigious industry event in Sorrento, however based on all guidance and feedback, for the safety of all involved we have taken the decision to postpone the event,” Hayward said.

NMBS will be offering refunds for all delegates’ bookings, including any extras such as additional nights, upgrades or activities. There will also be the option to transfer bookings to the 2022 event.

Changes to booked flights will need to be taken up directly with the airline.

Hayward continued: “By committing our booking to 2022 it shows our support for this great location and country which is going through a very tough time at the moment as many other countries are. However when we all emerge from this current situation, we are as confident as we were when we first booked Sorrento that it is a great place to host the NMBS All Industry Conference.”
