Having closely monitored the progress of the COVID-19 pandemic and the actions of governments and other organisations, the ICPC’s Executive Committee and Secretariat have postponed the Madrid Plenary until 2021 in the same venue. The 2021 ICPC Plenary will be held at the Novotel Madrid Center on Tuesday 13th to Thursday 15th April 2021 inclusive. We will have the same conference facilities as planned for this year and the hotel has kindly agreed to transfer all confirmed guestroom bookings to the new dates in 2021 at the same rate.
If you have booked a guestroom at the Novotel Madrid Center and do not want to hold it for the 2021 Plenary, you are of course at liberty to cancel it. If you booked your guestroom room directly with the hotel, stating that you are attending the ICPC Plenary, you should be able to cancel the booking without charge. We suggest that you send an email message to firstname.lastname@example.org
stating that you need to cancel the guestroom booking and ask the hotel to confirm that, in accordance with the ICPC’s contract, there is no charge for cancellation. Please note: The hotel advises that there may be some delay in responding to cancellation requests because they are short-staffed due to the ongoing pandemic.
The health and welfare of delegates is paramount so we trust you will appreciate why this decision had to be taken. The thoughts of the ICPC’s Executive Committee and Secretariat go out to all who have been and will be impacted by COVID-19.
