All over the world the coronavirus pandemic has lead to numerous changes of plans. In line with this framework, the GBPAP2020 Final, scheduled to June 19th and 20th in Frankfurt, Germany will be postponed, too. CINET will inform all 450 partners/sponsors, participants, nominees, jury members, country captains, trade magazines as soon as possible, personally, as well. For now, a new date for the Finals cannot be announced yet, but the Event is likely to be scheduled on the 2nd half of 2020. All preparations will be continued. The organization of the scheduled National Pre-Selections of The Global Best Practices Awards Program 2020 in the coming months will be adjusted.
