Coronavirus has claimed its latest victim as Reed MIDEM, organiser of MIPIM has announced that the 2020 edition of the event has been cancelled and rescheduled to take place June 2-5 in Cannes.
The well-being of our Companions is our priority and given the evolving situation we have contacted our travel partners and asked them to clarify the situation regarding either refunding cost of train tickets, rescheduling for June or amending should Companions wish to continue to travel.
Currently we are unsure what the ramifications of this will be as regards practical issues such as booking accommodation and events already organised and paid for. So far as insurance claims we suspect re-scheduling may not trigger insurance liability.
We have set up a survey of Companions to gather views and opinions about intentions for Cannes Cannes Express.
As soon as we have more information we will make an announcement.
