Coronavirus situation

UPDATE 12 MARCH 2020

 

Dear guests,

Our Belgian government wants to encourage citizenship among the Belgians, in order to contain the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country.

What does this mean? Our governments asks the cooperation from everyone in order to avoid handshakes, kisses, and hosting events like our International Credit Management Day. Also, a lot of our international partners won’t be able to join our event due to this nasty virus, which compromises our speed dating concept.

For these reasons, the TCM Belgium team has decided to postpone the International Credit Management Day to the same period next year (mid May 2021). That way we can protect and guarantee the qualitative content of this event.

So not to worry, you wíll get to experience the international vibes during this unique day, we only want to make sure they don’t turn into feverish vibes!

See you at the latest in 2021!
