With the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the spread of Coronavirus, Doncaster Chamber of Commerce has decided to postpone a number of events planned over the coming weeks, including its headline Conference in May.
The Chamber is also looking at ways to deliver some of its events programme and training courses as online interactive sessions with further details to be released when available.
The Chamber has decided to take proactive action to help businesses and other partners to plan accordingly, and to ensure events can be re-arranged with as little disruption as possible.
The Chamber’s plan is flexible and will be updated to allow for changes brought about by ongoing polices and advice provided by government.
Andy Hibbitt, the Chamber’s Chief Operating Officer said:
“Doncaster Chamber are determined to continue supporting our members and the wider business community as we work through this uncertain time together.
We think this is the right thing to do at this time, but we know we are all working with an ever changing picture. Please bear with us as we continue to plan and deliver accordingly.”
The Chamber’s events team will be reaching out to delegates who have already booked to attend forthcoming events to inform them of changes, whilst members and non-members alike can find out more via the Chamber’s website and social media channels.
The Doncaster Chamber last week launched a dedicated online resource for local businesses about the coronavirus, bringing together advice and guidance alongside practical support to help businesses and their employees prepare for and minimise disruption caused by the outbreak.
Up to date local and national business advice on the coronavirus can be accessed at www.doncaster-chamber.co.uk/coronavirus. Doncaster Chamber will also be updating businesses with the latest recommendations through their social media channels.
