SchemaPlay and Coronavirus: Postponement of Annual Conference

Everyone is understandably worried about family and loved ones as well as their work and welfare at this time, and in order to remove at least one uncertainty, and to minimise significant losses due to the payment of cancellation charges,  we have decided to suspend all SchemaPlay training and events until the Autumn.  This includes the postponement of our annual Conference on 20th June at the Danubius Hotel.  If you have booked/paid in advance for this or any other of our scheduled events you will be receiving a full refund from us in the next few days. The repayment will be made to your credit card (apparently this can take up 30 days depending on the card issuer).

We fully recognise that the introduction of social ‘distancing’ needs to be timed carefully by the government to ensure that the public are still committed to it as infections peak.  We also feel that where gatherings can be reduced without negative knock-on consequences, the responsible thing is for them to be postponed right now.  Everyone has quite enough to worry about at this time, and we feel that by making a decision now to postpone our training and events we will at least remove one small uncertainty.  With our very best wishes – do take care,  John and Lynnette
