A Message to our World Employer Branding Day Community

18 March 2020


It is with great sadness, we announce the postponement of World Employer Branding Day 13-15 May 2020 | Lisbon.


We have concluded the global outbreak of COVID-19 places us in a Force Majeure situation.


This follows the Portuguese Government’s decision on 15 March 2020 to prohibit the holding of events with more than one hundred people as part of the measures to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.


The decision also follows concerns that a number of our international speakers, partners and delegates face an exceptional number of government and corporate travel bans and/or restrictions as a result of COVID-19 and many speakers have recently advised they are unable to participate as a result of this.


We have been working hard over the past year to present a memorable 5th edition of the event. Our commitment is still to deliver this in 2020 and ensure the industry is able to rebound quickly from a situation that is impacting us all.


We’re planning a revised date for World Employer Branding Day for November 2020 and are in contact with our venue partners to announce a new date as soon as possible. We thank you for your understanding as we work through logistics as quickly as possible. Once the new dates have been confirmed, a further announcement will be made on/or before 1 April.


We are grateful for our community’s support, especially at this exceptionally challenging time for everyone. Please be safe and take care of each other.
