OFFICIAL STATEMENT & UPDATE

British Titanic Society Convention 2021

Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19)

 

With the BTS annual convention only seven weeks away, the second strain of Coronavirus continues to cause havoc to our lives & livelihoods, with even more devastating effect than the first.

Once again, the committee and the management of the Commodore Hotel in Cobh, have discussed the possibility of staging this years’ event and sadly, have come to the decision that it simply isn’t practical to continue.

With the length of current Lockdown restrictions uncertain and the addition of the UK’s exit from the European Union, meaning quarantine restrictions in both directions could be added, means that in all probability, most of our delegates would find it impractical, if not impossible to travel to Ireland this Spring, leaving us with little choice and once again, we must sadly, postpone the Cobh Convention until 2022. After liaising with the Commodore Hotel, we are pleased to announce that the British Titanic Society Convention will be from Thursday 7th – Sunday 10th April 2022.
