Dear All,
You will appreciate that in these uncertain times, planning future events has been challenging to say the least.  There is no firm prediction as to when social distancing measures will be relaxed or lifted, but it seems certain that large physical gatherings will not be possible for the rest of the year.

We are however, delighted to bring you the first ever Virtual CIPA Congress! 
To avoid Zoom fatigue we have spread the sessions over four days 14-17 September on alternate mornings and afternoons. The meeting will be accessed via a web- platform, details of which will be launched shortly. We hope to maximise delegate engagement using the the web platform so please log in and familiarise yourself to the platform as soon as the link is available.  This will contain full details of sessions, speakers and sponsors and will enable delegates to communicate and network on-line.  

As ever, our aim is to provide high quality CPD with a practical focus, covering issues that IP professionals face in their daily working lives. The draft programme for the full conference can be viewed here. Some sessions and timings may change as we develop the programme, but we will continue to update the draft, so do check the latest version. We will bring you the final programme as soon as possible.
CIPA is committed to providing excellent CPD at an affordable cost, and in view of the unusual circumstances we are offering special daily and weekly rates, with the members’ weekly rate being just £195 (Inc VAT). 

I do hope that you will feel inspired to join us  - and this year distance is no barrier!  We very much look forward to welcoming you to Congress 2020.

Julia Florence
Chair, Congress Committee
