Global Facilitation Summit 2020



October 2020

Global Summit Update

After many weeks of carefully monitoring COVID-19 developments, including guidance from public health authorities and also looking at the continued business impact on our members, their businesses, and our potential sponsors, it has become clear that the Global Facilitation Summit which had been scheduled for 27-30 October, 2020, must be postponed.

The global board along with the extremely hard working summit organizing team have decided to move it to October 2021. For those of you who have already registered and booked travel, we will be communicating with you separately. We have been exploring how to keep the event momentum with virtual sessions in Facilitation Impact Week that we hope will be inspiring, inclusive and impactful.

This has not been an easy decision but seems to be the most sensible one given the ongoing circumstances we all find ourselves in. We are very grateful for the support we’ve received as we thoroughly explored every option to deliver this year’s event in some form and even explored a fully virtual, multi-hub summit. We know how much our global community looks forward to coming together to learn and the board valued the opportunity to collaborate and connect with all of you and we want to keep the opportunity to socially connect and not physically distance at such an event.

From all of the IAF Global Board we would like to thank the summit organizing team for all their hard work, time and energy and look forward to a fantastic event in 2021.

The summit team have compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) which can be found here.
