NEW YORK – The 23rd Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum has been postponed until the spring of 2022. It had been scheduled for December 14 but concerns over the current developments with the Omicron variant ledt to the decision to postpone the in-person event. Capital Link President Nicolas Bornozis and Managing Director Olga Bornozi made the announcement via email on December 3. Their statement follows:
“After due consideration we have taken the painful decision to postpone the 23rd Annual Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum for the spring of 2022. We will have a final date very soon.
“We believe that by then, the winter will be behind us and the overall situation will be much clearer and conducive to an in-person event.
“We have taken pride for the fact that the Capital Link Invest in Greece Forum has taken place year after year for 22 years regardless of the political and economic situation in Greece.
“However, recent COVID developments and new international restrictions have presented us with challenges that cannot be ignored or surpassed.
“Two main considerations went into our decision making. First, the safety and comfort of our panelists and delegates. Second, the track record of credibility and quality we have built over the last 22 years as the flagship event promoting Greece as a business and investment destination to a US audience.
“In the current environment, as conditions deteriorated day by day, concerns about the Omicron variant coupled with the new international travel requirements create safety challenges to our speakers and delegates and would impede the optimal hosting of the event. A big part of the event is the in large attendance of the various sessions, the extensive in-person networking and the multiple meetings.
“An in-person event is optimal and also widely needed and expected by everyone. In this context, we have also decided not to host an on line event now, so as not to take away from our spring 2022 in person forum.
“We appreciate very much the loyalty and support of our long time sponsors, speakers/panelists and delegates.
We look forward to seeing you in the spring and wish you the best for the upcoming holidays!”
