World Out of Home Organisation cancels 2020 Toronto Congress

The World Out of Home Organisation (WOO) has cancelled its 2020 Congress in Toronto and re-scheduled the event for June 2021.

The announcement:

World Out of Home Organization: Toronto 2020 Congress is cancelled, re-scheduled for June 2021

The World Out of Home Organization announces with regret that its planned Toronto Congress from June 3-5 is cancelled due to the spread of the COVID-19 virus and consequent travel restrictions.

The Congress is being rescheduled for Toronto in June 2021. Attendees who have booked already and other partners should contact Mark Flys on mark@worldooh.org for further details.

Organization President Tom Goddard says; “COVID-19 is now officially designated a pandemic by the World Health Organization and is impacting Out of Home companies worldwide. Therefore we had no option but to cancel our June gathering and postpone to 2021. We felt it best to make the decision at this time to remove uncertainty for attendees and our partners.

“This is the first Congress we have cancelled in 61 years but it’s clearly right to put the health and wellbeing of our members and others first. In the meantime the Organization will continue to promote the global industry as energetically as ever.

“Our very best wishes go to everyone in the global Out of Home community as we all deal with this difficult time.”
