Nordic ALM Forum 2020 cancelled

After careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the 2020 Nordic ALM Forum, which was re-scheduled for 16 September. While the COVID–19 pandemic has at least momentarily abated, September still does not seem to be right time for the event. This was not a decision taken lightly – Nordic ALM Forum is a key event for Nordic ALM practitioners. However, prioritising the health and safety of the Nordic ALM community, our partners and employees, we believe cancelling the event this year is the right decision.
