World Employer Branding Day 2020 Format
21 July 2020
We are continuing to monitor for changes in recommendations about events and travel from the World Health Organisation and local health and government offices as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The safety and wellbeing of delegates, speakers and partners is at the forefront of our planning decisions for the event. Furthermore, we want to ensure there is sufficient planning time for everyone to make the most of their World Employer Branding Day 2020 experience and we plan to make a decision in early August about whether the event can continue as a LIVE event or whether a hybrid (LIVE & virtual) or virtual event will be necessary given the status of the pandemic and guidance from the relevant government and health authorities at that time.

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.
