SCTE event update

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) impact continues worldwide, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone all Society events until further notice. This includes the Society’s 75th Anniversary Annual Gala Awards Dinner at the Tower of London in June, which has now been postponed to 26 June 2021, and its Summer Lecture which will now be held on 7 July 2021 at Mercedes-Benz World. The SCTE Benelux Group’s Summer Lecture on 11 June 2020 has also been cancelled. Next year’s Spring Lecture will take place on 24 March 2021. We will also take a view, in the next two months, on our Autumn Lecture and AGM (7 October 2020) in London and keep you updated. The health and safety of our members is always paramount.
