Eastern Conference - Cambridge

In the current climate, the R3 Eastern Conference has unfortunately been postponed to 2021 however no new date has yet been set, our team will provide an update as soon as possible.

On Friday 13 March, the R3 Executive Committee and R3 Executive Committee Consultation Group met to discuss the impact of the ongoing spread of COVID-19. We took into account the prevailing advice from HM Government as well as data from other expert bodies but most importantly we took account of feedback from our members.  

We are conscious of the need for R3 to be a responsible corporate citizen. While the data suggest that the chances of contracting COVID-19 are generally low, there are still many unknowns about this virus. We are therefore cancelling or deferring all R3 events scheduled to take place by the end of June 2020. 

This includes the R3 Eastern Conference which has unfortunately been postponed to 2021, however no new date has been set and our team will provide an update as soon as possible.

Thank you for your patience and understanding and in the meantime, for any queries, please contact our Events Team at

Conference Ends

The Eastern Conference is tailored to insolvency, restructuring and turnaround professionals in the Eastern and Midlands regions and while we're proud to offer a high calibre of content and speakers, it's also a fantastic opportunity to network with fellow delegates.

During the day we will have opportunties to networking during lunch and refreshment breaks and once the conference content finishes for the day, we'd love you to join us at our Welcome Drinks Reception before the inaugural R3 Gala Dinner.
