MBE London 2020 postponed due to growing concerns over COVID-19 virus

Given the growing concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent rise in cases, the organisers of the UK’s longest established and most well-respected event in the financial intermediary market have been obliged to postpone the event that was due to take place on 20th October 2020 at the Business Design Centre.  
 
Given the growing concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic and the recent rise in cases, the organisers of the UK’s longest established and most well-respected event in the financial intermediary market have been obliged to postpone the event that was due to take place on 20th October 2020 at the Business Design Centre.  
 
Commenting on the decision to postpone, Mike Mikunda, MBE Event Director said: “Whilst we could have made the event safe and secure and offered a great live experience, due to the continuing uncertainty regarding COVID-19, we have to place the safety of our exhibitors, sponsors, knowledge partners and visitors at the forefront of our thinking.
 
“We have looked carefully at alternative dates and have decided that rather than move to a different time of year, we are going to reschedule to 12th October 2021.  This new date will also have the added benefit of being well clear of the current situation and be well timed for the economic recovery.”
 
Mikunda added: “We very much look forward to a positive 2021 and to seeing exhibitors, visitors, sponsors and knowledge partners at MBE Leeds on 28th April and in London on 12th October”.
 
After 18 years, MBE has become an important event in the financial intermediary calendar, providing information, inspiration and contacts and will return in 2021 in the Spring and Autumn.
