Cambridge awards event postponed over coronavirus concerns
An awards ceremony that was due to take place in Cambridge tomorrow evening (Thursday) has been postponed as a precaution in light of growing concerns about the coronavirus.
Event organisers, Cofinitive, announced that its #21toWatch Top21.2020 Awards – due to take place at Cambridge technology firm Arm - was being postponed due to health and safety reasons linked to the virus.
A statement said: “Our host venue, Arm, has taken a decision to cease all external meetings as a precaution to ensure the health and wellbeing of their staff.
“Cofinitive fully supports Arm’s decision during this unprecedented time and we have decided to postpone the event as the only responsible course of action.
“Please continue to follow the #21toWatch discussion – celebrate those long and shortlisted companies, until we can formally announce the Top21.2020.
“We apologise for any inconvenience or disappointment but will be back in touch as soon as we have agreed a new date for the event.”
The 21toWatch awards are part of the communication firm’s campaign to showcase new ventures and the work of innovators and entrepreneurs in the Greater Cambridge area.
