Rheumatology & Aging Conference 2015

It is regrettable that Zing Conferences CIC,( a non-profit community Interest Company), has been forced to cancel the forthcoming Rheumatology Conference that was scheduled for Cambridge 8th – 11th September 2015. This has been a difficult decision, however to proceed will be detrimental to Zing Conferences CIC and hinder our pledge to the Scientific Community as a whole with a loss of valuable funds that cannot be justified.

Due to the lack of attendance, partly due to conflicting dates of another conference, Zing Conferences CIC has been put in the position of postponement with the liability of payment for the unused venue in Cambridge.

As we are a Community Interest Company and are regulated to spend wisely and distribute profits back to the scientific community that we serve, the only way we are able to finance this postponement and venue liability is to deduct the cost from the budget allocated for the next Rheumatology Conference which had yet to be confirmed, in San Diego.

It is unfortunate that both Chairs have decided that they are unable to contribute to the cancellation fees and cannot afford to work within the available funds that they have for San Diego. Therefore It is a great disappointment to us that we find ourselves the bearer of sad news that the Rheumatology Conference will no longer go ahead.
