Captive conference not affected by weather
Next week’s Bermuda Captive Conference will go ahead as scheduled, organisers stressed today.
In a statement, organisers of the conference, which will run from September 10 to 13 at the Fairmont Southampton hotel, said no hurrricanes are forecast to affect the island during the event.
The conference is expected to attract around 800 delegates, many of them coming in from overseas.
“According to the US National Hurricane Centre, José is about 1,000 nautical miles to our south and currently tracking to bypass the island. It is not forecast to affect Bermuda during the conference,” the statement said.
Irma, which is expected to make landfall in Florida on Sunday, is not a threat to Bermuda, forecasters say.
Any delegate whose flight has been cancelled and is unable to attend the conference is asked to contact Rhona Emmerson on 1-441-2952626 or at email@example.com
