The remaining event topics this year include platform due diligence summits and ESG workshops.

SimplyBiz Group group noted that the extension is due to the 12,000 bookings it has received.

Furthermore, the event topics in the first quarter of next year include investment forums, mortgage meetings and tax efficient investing and intergenerational advice workshops.

Richard Ardron, marketing director of The SimplyBiz Group, said: “The pandemic, and its resulting disruptions to everyday life, have presented challenges for all of us, yet advisers have chosen to continue to invest their time in educational and networking events, demonstrating, once again, their dedication to providing the best possible service and outcomes to their clients.

“We reacted quickly and decisively in order to move the largest events programme of its kind online at the start of the pandemic, and worked hard to ensure we are delivering the highest-quality content from industry-leading presenters across a comprehensive range of subject areas.

“Feedback from our member firms has been great so far, and we are committed to delivering events in this way until such a time as we can start to introduce elements of face-to-face meetings to our programme.”
