The Scottish Fundraising Conference 2020/2021
Due to the ongoing coronavirus (Covid-19) situation in the UK, we will now hold the Institute of Fundraising Scottish Fundraising Conference on September 28th and 29th, 2021.
Every effort had been made to go ahead with the event in September 2020, but it has become clear in recent weeks that restrictions caused by Covid-19 mean that hosting the conference this year would not be possible.
The health and safety of our exhibitors and sponsors, speakers and delegates is our number one concern, and while it was a difficult decision, we believe this is the right course of action. Guidelines about when large gatherings or events are still unclear and we have to be realistic. Therefore, we have decided that the best course of action would be to postpone the conference until next year, when we hope the worst of the crisis will have subsided.
We are planning a launch event for the conference is planned for March 2021. Details of this event will be available soon.
We would like to thank our sponsors and exhibitors that had already signed up to attend in 2020. We are pleased to announce that most of them have agreed to take part in the rearranged event next year. We would also like to thank the speakers who were scheduled to take part in IoFScotConf20, and we will be putting out calls for IoFScotConf21 later this year.
We remain fully committed to delivering a quality event that focuses on Scottish Fundraising, and we look forward to seeing you all next year.
Stay safe and keep fundraising!
