GA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2020: Coronavirus update

GA Annual Conference 2020: Coronavirus update

It is with great regret that we announce the GA Annual Conference and Exhibition 2020 will not be taking place at the University of Surrey from Thursday 16 to Saturday 18 April 2020.

Whilst the Conference is an important time for the geography education community, we recognise the risks that can arise from holding such an event at the present time.

We are committed to ensuring the Conference is as representative and inclusive as possible and are aware that recent government advice on travel and large gatherings would likely disproportionately affect vulnerable groups and those with caring responsibilities.

We are currently investigating the possibility of hosting some Conference sessions online in the coming weeks. All speakers, delegates and partners will receive communications by email in the next few days to clarify the next steps.

We are profoundly sorry for the disappointment and inconvenience that this decision causes and are grateful for the support of delegates, presenters, exhibitors and sponsors during these unprecedented times.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with Harriet Brookes if you have any questions.
