In light of the novel Coronavirus outbreak

The outbreak of the novel Coronavirus is devastating and the epidemic hits the Chinese and international Tourism industry unprecedentedly. An adjustment to the CSTC 2020 agenda is that we add a new panel discussion on ‘The Ongoing Coronavirus Outbreak Hits the Tourism Industry – How are We Facing the Challenges & Preparing for the Future?’

Following the UK government’s advice on Coronavirus precautions, CSTC 2020 Committee will make sure that all attendees have no travel history to China and other specified areas within 14 days prior to the 26th Feb (Other specified areas: Thailand, Japan, Republic of Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Macau); and all attendees have no close contact with travelers from China and above specified areas within 14 days prior to the 26th Feb. Infrared thermometer & Hand Hygiene Gel will be provided on sited as well.

In tough times, it is more important than ever we stay together and stay strong!
