The Waypoint AirMed & Rescue conference, airshow and exhibition that was due to take place in September has been rescheduled to May 2012. The venue remains unchanged as London Oxford Airport, UK.Â The official line from Ian Cameron, event chairman and Waypoint magazine editor-in-chief, is:Â â€œWe want the event to be the best we can make it for all attending. In this case, that means moving from September to May 2012 to better fit with the industry calendar. The Voyageur team will continue working to make the next Waypoint event a great educational and networking opportunity for the aeromedical and air rescue community.â€
The event website is at www.airmedandrescue.com and we expect they will catch up soon and update every page to the new 2012 details – as we report this, the Exhibition, Exhibition Plan, and Event ProgrammeÂ pages still refer to 2011 but no doubt these will be updated shortly in line with all the other pages on the site.
In our experience, the re-timing of an event like this is usually due to lack of people signing up for the original dates.Â We can only wonder what the level of organisation is like inside Waypoint’s office after we received not one but two emails yesterday regarding this “re-schedule”.Â Firstly they told us it was May 8-9 and then an hour later another email to say it isn’t May 8-9 after all, but May 1-2 2012.
