FIDI switches 2018 conference venue to Puerto Rico

FIDI has announced that its 2018 conference will take place in Puerto Rico, not Rio de Janeiro as previously announced. The conference will be from Sunday 8 to Wednesday 11 April 2018.

FIDI said that it had made the change as a result of concerns raised over security as the ongoing violence and political unrest in Rio de Janeiro showed no sign of resolution. The FIDI Board had carefully monitored the situation and come to its decision supported by an independent Risk Assessment Report and first-hand testimonies from local affiliates.
