Membership and meetings

Update on Covid-19 – 2 June 2020

The challenges of Covid-19 continue for industry and its customers albeit that there has been a progressive return for operations. OTA2 have continued with a variety of online approaches for our normal meetings. We anticipate that all industry fora that we host, will remain online until the end of August and maybe beyond. We will continue to monitor the situation with a view to either extending this approach or reverting to normal mix of meetings and calls/online engagement.
