City Talks 2020 Cancellation: Coronavirus concerns

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

The City Talks Team has decided to cancel the 2020 ideas festival scheduled to take place in Paris in April. This unusual move has been caused by the way the outbreak of COVID-19, the respiratory illness virus, is impacting the world's event sector.

The 2020 edition of the City Talks ideas festival, supposed to take place at the American Church in Paris under the theme of the “evolution of knowledge”, had already attracted slightly more than 400 hundreds diplomats, policy-makers, researchers and future trends enthusiasts from over 30 different nationalities. 

This is a very tough call to make. The Paris edition of City Talks is an incredibly important event for us and it's one of our favorite ways to learn and listen to all of the amazing ideas that are making or could make, the world go round and make people’s lives slightly better. We’ve chosen to prioritize the health and safety of our attendees, partners, volunteers and everyone who helps put City Talks together. 

The decision to cancel the Paris edition of City Talks is a hard one because it put to bin an entire year’s work of research and development but will also have a huge impact on the other editions of City Talks around the world; more on that later in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, we recommend that you take care of yourself and of someone else.
