IAEA 90th Anniversary Event postponed

The Institute of Automotive Engineer Assessors (IAEA) 90th Anniversary Event scheduled to take place on Saturday, 17 September has been postponed while the nation is in mourning following the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The IAEA said in a statement: “While it is regrettable that the event will not proceed as planned, the IAEA team feels that as a mark of respect and to stand in solidarity with IAEA members across the country in this period of mourning, it is fit and proper that we should postpone our IAEA 90th Anniversary Event.

“This decision is not something that was taken lightly, and while there is no obligation on organisations to cancel events, there was a consensus that this is the right thing to do in the circumstances.”

The IAEA is working with the Crown Plaza, Stratford-upon-Avon and other stakeholders to find an alternative date which will be announced shortly. The event will now go ahead in early 2023.

The statement continued: “We trust that all those booked to attend will understand and support the decision. The IAEA team is are very grateful for the support to date and hope that this will continue for the revised date. We will be in touch shortly to advise the revised date.

“The IAEA passes its heartfelt condolences to the royal family at this difficult time. We offer our thanks for Queen Elizabeth’s devoted years of service and look forward to welcoming King Charles III to the throne.”
