LME Week COVID-19 update

The LME is continuing with plans for LME Week 2020, due to take place this October. Whilst we currently intend to hold the LME-hosted events as planned, we will only do so if safe and in accordance with UK government advice in respect of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

LME Week comprises a number of LME-hosted events as well as conferences, dinners and receptions hosted by members and other stakeholders. We are not able to provide updates on the status of any of these other events, but will be updating the ‘What’s On’ calendar in the lead-up to LME Week.
