Dear valued customer,

I am writing to inform you that unfortunately, we have to cancel the 12th Japan ETF Conference that was to be held on April 8th and 9th, 2020 due to the recent outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

We had been preparing for this event for a long time so it greatly saddens us to cancel the event at this time, but we think our guests’ health and safety cannot not be compromised.

However, we shall be organizing this annual event in 2021, and we very much appreciate your understanding and your participation next year.

 

Thank you,

S&P Dow Jones Indices
