SiGMA Group has announced today that their SiGMA Europe Virtual Summit is being postponed to November, and it will now run from 16th to the 18th.
New government measures in Malta due to an unexpected rise in Covid-19 cases prompted this decision.
Prime Minister Robert Abela made the announcement today. New closures will happen from March 5th until April 11th. Abela told journalists that the country's bars and clubs will remain closed, enforcement will be stepped up and the fine for those breaking the rules will be doubled to 6,000 euros.
SiGMA Group Founder, Eman Pulis, said that “SiGMA in Malta was meant to happen this coming month in April, but with the new announcement that bars and restaurants will be closed until April, we were left with no choice but to push the show until November. We welcome this decision, we believe in the safety of all our delegates. There’s no SiGMA without restaurants, without bars - that's where all the magic in business networking happens. I look forward to seeing you in November, save the dates - I'll see you in Malta”
