Latest information on COVID-secure policies for the CLO Symposium 2021: Last update 26 March 2021

What to expect when the CLO Symposium returns in September 2021.

The annual CLO Symposium has a vital role for the CLO community to facilitate investment and debate global industry trends.

Hosting virtual events has kept the industry connected, but the networking on offer at in-person meetings is undoubtedly more effective for business success.

Inevitably, when the CLO Symposium and Manager Awards returns in September, some things will look a bit different:

  • Despite the vaccine rollout in the UK continuing apace - over 28 million people have now had some vaccination with a government roadmap targeting 21st June 2021 for a return to zero restrictions - we can expect businesses to remain highly selective with when their employees travel internationally and prioritise the most important events in the year. We know that for many in the CLO industry this event is a key marker in their calendar. To maximise participation we will put in place more technology on-site to allow remote participation in business meetings and the manager awards for those unable to travel, as well as improve the effectiveness of the online networking function to help you connect by any means with those you wish to meet.
  • Fully contactless registration will provide attendees with self-service check-in. 
  • New COVID-secure protocols are likely to surround the re-opening of business conferences in the UK. The Landmark, with one of the largest and beautiful hotel ballrooms in London, has over 2,100sq/m of meeting space which will allow us to accommodate any new requirements. This may alter the usual layout of the event but will ensure the safety of all participants.
  • The Landmark's publishes the latest updates on their commitment to welcoming conference guests back to their property under the highest safety standards on their website.

We really look forward to bringing the industry back together again at both the conference and awards.
