Cancellation and abandonment

Cancelling or cutting an event short is every organiser’s worst nightmare. Whilst there will always be practical measures you can take to reduce the chance of cancelling the event, circumstances could arise that are beyond your control. In recent years we have seen a volcanic ash cloud disrupting air travel, riots in London and pan-European strikes all of which would have had a significant impact on many events.
