CREDIT WEEK HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL 5 - 9 OCTOBER
To date, Shard Financial Media has been following Government guidelines regarding the continuation of the events at Credit Week surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus. However, as the news has been progressing we have listened to the concerns, from all parties, around the health and welfare of their staff.
We are very conscious of the need to provide a safe environment for our attendees and had found, until recently, that our audience was reassured by the measures we had put in place to achieve this. However, based on government advice, we have taken the extremely difficult decision to postpone Credit Week events including The Parliamentary Reception, Strategic Mortgage Roundtable and Dinner, Credit Summit, Credit Week Gala Dinner featuring the Credit500 and Women in Credit Awards, and our two webinars. We are now working through the ramifications of this unprecedented situation.
Credit Summit will now take place on 9 October, Women in Credit Awards will take place on 5 October, and all other events will be rescheduled for later in the year. All existing delegate tickets for events throughout Credit Week will be transferred to the postponed dates.
We want to thank everyone for their support and patience during this time. For any enquiries please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or refer to the FAQs below.

A - You may be able to get a refund on your tickets. You're more likely to get a full refund if the train you were intending to take is delayed, or your reservation is not available. You may have to pay a cancellation fee if your booked service is running normally. Some advance tickets and special offers may be non-refundable, so check the terms and conditions of the train operating company.
