As you are aware, globally there are now more than 180,000 COVID-19 cases and more than 7,000 deaths across 150 countries, and the numbers are increasing rapidly. Based on this latest situation, Singapore will implement additional precautionary measures to further reduce the risk of importation of COVID-19 to Singapore. These include travel advisories against all non-essential travel abroad, and further restrictions on travellers coming into Singapore. From 16th March 2020, 23:59 hours, all travellers (including Singapore Residents, Long Term Pass holders, and short-term visitors) entering Singapore with recent travel history to ASEAN countries, Japan, Switzerland, or the United Kingdom within the last 14 days will be issued with a 14-day Stay-Home Notice (SHN).
Furthermore, the Ministry of Health has also announced on 13th March 2020 that events with 250 participants and more are to be deferred or cancelled.
In this regard, the SBMA Management Committee has taken a measured decision to
cancel the APPMC 2020 (was supposed to be held on 7-9 June 2020) and to hold it in 2021 instead (on 6-8 June 2021). We have also considered postponement of this event to later part of the year, but there are no suitable dates and could collide with some prominent events.
It is with much regret that we have to announce the cancellation of APPMC, but given the current situation, travelling in and out of Singapore will be a challenge to all our foreign delegates, sponsors, speakers and guests. The Management Committee of SBMA deliberated on this for some time and decided that this will be the best course of action.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who have indicated your participation for APPMC 2020. For those who have secured sponsorship slots with us, Foretell Business Solutions will be in touch with you separately on follow up arrangements. We hope you will continue to support us and the APPMC in 2021.
