Postponed - The Canning Agenda 10 Years On Conference

  • DATE TBC

UNDER CURRENT CIRCUMSTANCES, WE HAVE DECIDED TO POSTPONE THIS EVENT. DATE TO BE CONFIRMED.

Ten years after the UK Government launched its Canning Agenda, announcing its intention to re-engage with Latin America, our Canning Agenda 10 Years On conference seeks to review progress and establish how successful it has been, and identify what needs to be done to accelerate the progress of a revitalised relationship between Latin America and the UK.

The Canning Agenda 10 Years On - Postponed

The fluidity of the COVID-19 situation and the latest Government guidelines mean that we are no longer in a position to go ahead with our Canning Agenda 10 Years On conference. We apologise to all our 100 guests who were looking forward to the insights of our expert panels and to the speeches of Lord Hague and Minister of State for International Trade Conor Burns.

During the emergency, most of our future events will be converted to online webinars. However, we have deemed the Canning Agenda conference to be too large and complex to transfer easily into a virtual format; added to which the whole purpose of the conference was to provoke debate and gather broad input – a dimension where even the best online packages cannot yet supersede human face-to-face interaction.

Please note that this event is not cancelled – it is merely postponed. We have asked our venue – the Clothworkers Hall – to hold over our booking, together with that for the Gala Dinner, until a future date.

For more on our approach during these unusual circumstances, please refer to our Message from the CEO.

Yours faithfully,

Cristina Cortes

CEO
