We have taken the difficult decision to postpone MuseumNext Edinburgh on grounds of public health because of the global COVID-19 pandemic.
The safety of our community is our top priority and despite the UK government stating that an event of our size is still safe to proceed, we don’t agree.
We have emailed all ticket holders telling them that the event is postponed and that tickets for the conference will be transferred to the rescheduled event. At this stage in this global crisis we’re not in a position to say when that will be, and we don’t expect to know for several months.
Delegates from around the globe were due to gather. We know that people will have flights that they can’t use and hotel rooms booked and we want to apologise for this.
Had we felt it at all possible to continue without risk to those attending, we would have proceeded with the event. But this is a crisis, unprecedented in modern times and our only response can be one that protects the health of our community.
