With the government extending its lockdown of the country for a further three weeks the decision has been made to give more time for the situation to ease.
The dinner, which was due to take place on Thursday 17 September, will now be held on Tuesday 17 November at the Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square, London.
The organisers highlighted that the welfare and safety of all guests, sponsor and table hosts, suppliers and colleagues was the top priority and that this was the most appropriate course of action in the current climate.
IMLA chairwoman Louisa Sedgwick said: “While we all hope that the current lockdown restrictions will have been lifted by September, there are still many unknowns and given that we had the opportunity to secure a date a couple of months later, we felt this made sense.
“We look forward to meeting friends and colleagues in November, and to looking forward with confidence to a happier 2021.”
All table and sponsorship bookings will be carried forward to the new date.
