Important update: event postponed

As you will be aware, the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus has resulted in a wide variety of restrictions, closures and isolation procedures being put in place by many countries all around the world, to try and delay the further spread of the illness.

In recent days, many of these measures have become stricter, from limiting social interaction opportunities and gatherings to complete border closures. ESOMAR’s MAIN FEST LATAM – scheduled to take place from 22 to 24 April - had a significant component of international attendees who now either cannot travel due to border closures or are unable to attend due to (domestic and international) travel bans.

As it is ESOMAR’s first and over-riding priority to ensure the health and well-being of our members and delegates and avoid the possibility for people to unexpectedly find themselves in a quarantine situation far from home and family, we have now decided to postpone our 2020 LATAM conference until October; the venue remains the same, and the dates will be the 18th to 21st October. Needless to say, all current registrations and payments will be valid for the revised dates!

We are additionally delighted to announce that as part of this re-scheduling, APEIM will now host its TalkIN* event on the third day, Wednesday 21st of October, and on behalf of ESOMAR and APEIM, we wish you continued good health and well-being in these challenging times, and we look forward very much to welcoming you in Lima in October.

Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us via or on +31 20 664 2141 for any questions, comments or concerns.

* TalkIN the leading Peruvian Insights Event will circulate more information via APEIM Social Media Channels shortly
