Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)
The growing situation with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in the UK is presenting unprecedented challenges for individuals, companies and organisations alike. As a responsible organisation, the IAQM’s primary concern is for the safety of its attendees, members, speakers, exhibitors and staff. We are therefore following the advice of the UK Government to ‘avoid social contact with others and stop non-essential travel to fight Coronavirus’ and as a result, all face-to-face events and workshops for the next few weeks will be postponed.
Where possible we will deliver events and workshops via online platforms. Please refer to the individual event page for further details around each of our events.
We will honour all bookings made for events to date and transfer these to the new event date, details of which will be circulated to you in due course.
We thank you for your support during this time.

There is widespread reporting of improvements in ambient air quality as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, but much of the evidence has focused on direct comparisons between air quality measurements made before and after social and travel restrictions were in place.
