Amid concerns over the coronavirus pandemic, the World Federation of Direct Selling Associations (WFDSA) has postponed this year’s World Congress XVI until March 2021.
The World Congress, titled “Tomorrow is Now,” had been scheduled for September 30 to October 2, 2020, in Bangkok, Thailand.
In a message posted on the WFDSA website, Magnus Brännström, WFDSA chairman, and Suchada Theeravachiraku, chairperson of WFDSA WCXVI Working Committee and Thai Direct Selling Association, said the decision was “in solidarity with governments, countries and organizations which are affected by Covid-19.”
According to WFDSA, all participant registrations will remain valid for the new dates, and all sponsor and partner contributions will be credited to next year.
“WFDSA would like to thank all our participants, sponsors and partners for understanding the need to take these necessary steps to postpone the event until next year,” said Brännström. “We very positively look forward to seeing you in Bangkok next year and together sharing a successful congress.”
