We regret to inform you that due to unforeseen circumstances, we have had to cancel our Annual London Investment Conference scheduled for 11th April 2019.
The Savoy, our previous venue of choice, has had to close the Ballroom unexpectedly following the recent collapse of its ceiling. At such short notice, it has not been possible to secure an alternative venue of similar size and standing.
After much consideration, we have decided to postpone the event and will contact you again with more information as soon as possible.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to welcoming you in the near future.
