COVID-19 Update

3rd April 2020

DBEI is closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation around the world. Having already postponed our BILT Asia event (2-4 April, Singapore) and our BILT ANZ event (17-20 June, Sydney), we are hopeful our remaining 2020 events will proceed.  However, the well-being of all our partners and participants in our events remains our utmost priority. We will continue to be guided by the World Health Organisation (WHO) and local health and government authorities in each region.

Our team and Committees are working hard to plan for contingencies should the need arise.

We wish to thank you all for your support and appreciate your patience and understanding under the current circumstances and will continue to update our website and the community if there are any changes.

If you have any concerns or questions about our events please email us at [email protected]
