ABOUT EPIC VIRTUAL 2020

A MESSAGE FROM THE COURSE DIRECTORS

In light of the evolving COVID 19 pandemic, we would like to inform you that EPIC 2020, will no longer proceed in its original face to face format. We are excited to announce the launch of EPIC Virtual 2020 in its place.

While October is several months away, the Course Directors are aware of the forecasts from the WHO about the potential spread of the disease. We are also mindful of the unprecedented restrictions on travel and gatherings of groups, which are clearly necessary to limit further spread. With this in mind, we wish to convey a clear decision at an early stage to give certainty to all our partners and interested attendees.

We appreciate your understanding and would like to thank all who have engaged with and supported us over the years. EPIC will look a little different this year, but our educational objectives remain the same, and our aim is to return to our very successful face to face format again in 2021.
