In an effort to keep our members informed of ISDA’s response to the coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like to make you aware of an important decision we have taken regarding the Annual General Meeting (AGM). After deliberations with the ISDA Board of Directors over how best to ensure the health and safety of our membership and employees, we have decided to reschedule the AGM from May 5-7, 2020 to November 3-5, 2020 in Madrid.

Given the value we place on engagement with our membership, we are pleased that we are able to find a new date to hold this important event in 2020. We will continue to monitor the situation closely, and will adapt conference policies and procedures as necessary as public health advice changes.

For more than three decades, ISDA has hosted an AGM to discuss and share ideas, debate policy and present market solutions essential to making the global derivatives market both safe and efficient. Our annual meeting is the best opportunity to engage with our 930+ member firms, and to bring the industry together to discuss these mission-critical issues. We believe postponement is the best possible outcome that will both keep attendees safe, and ensure we can deliver what is an extremely important and exciting event for the global derivatives industry.

If you are currently registered as an attendee:
Your registration will be automatically rolled over to the new date – you do not need to take any action. Those delegates who would prefer a full refund should contact the ISDA conferences team at If you are an exhibitor or sponsor, we will contact you separately with more details.

Hotel reservations:
Please remember to change your travel plans as necessary. If you have booked a room as part of the ISDA room block at the Hotel Riu Plaza España, all rooms have been released for the May dates, but please contact the hotel to rebook for November. More information on booking rooms for November is available here.

We sincerely hope you will join us in November in Madrid for an outstanding AGM.
