AIR Group has announced that its third annual National Later Life Adviser Conference will now be postponed until 2021 due to public health concerns around the spread of COVID-19.
The conference was due to take place at the National Space Centre in Leicester on 4 June 2020 but will now be held at the same venue on the 6th May 2021. The Air Awards have also been rescheduled for the same date next year.
Air Group has announced that the format of the conference, the content and programme will all remain the same, with up to 24 industry speakers and celebrity key-note addresses covering a range of later life issues through presentations and panel discussions.
Stuart Wilson (pictured), CEO at Air Group, said: “Given the current situation and the public health advice and guidance that we all need to follow, it seems a common-sense response to postpone this year’s National Later Life Adviser Conference and our first Air Awards until May 2021. It’s clearly disappointing to have to do this but we must ensure the safety of all those who attend including our staff, delegates, speakers and sponsors, and therefore it is absolutely the right thing to do.
“We’ll be back next year with an excellent event and in the meantime we at Air Group are here to support all later life advisers and to provide them with everything they might need to keep working during this period. We urge everyone to stay safe and do everything they can to stop the spread of the virus. Air Group staff are at the end of a phone or e-mail or live chat, and we are running business as usual albeit with staff working remotely. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you require our help.”
