DigiConnect Conference, that was scheduled for tomorrow in Karachi, has been cancelled due to security reasons, we can confirm.
In a message posted on official website, the organizers said: “It is with the deepest regret that we have to inform you that our digi connect influencer marketing conference which was to be held on Saturday, December 09, 2017 has been cancelled”.
Organizers said that they were informed by the IBA — where the conference was suppose to take place — very late in the evening of Friday December 08 that they cannot allow the event owing to security concerns.
Organizers reproduced the email of Jami Moiz, Assistant Professor Dept of Marketing & Center for Entrepreneurial Development-CED, IBA, as below:
“We regret to inform you that given a security advisory put out in view of the prevailing security situation the IBA is cancelling the booking.”
Despite all the hard work and preparation put in for this event, the circumstances proved to be beyond the control of organizers.
“Our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused, however, everyone’s well-being and safety is our chief priority. We would also like to thank our sponsors and partners for their tremendous support throughout the planning for digi connect”, the note further read.
Participants who had already paid the fee will be refunded.
