KHL statement on Coronavirus
20 March 2020
As a business and as individuals we are facing the same challenges as you - our readers, advertisers, clients, partners and suppliers.
We are all taking action to contain the COVID-19 virus and to safeguard our families, employees and our businesses. The majority of KHL’s staff around the world have moved to home working, and that may become all of us if government measures in the UK and USA change. We are pleased, however, that our Chinese colleagues in Shanghai and Beijing are now moving back into their offices and starting to resume normal working. That is a comforting reminder that this situation will not last for ever.
There are aspects of our business that have had to change. We have already postponed several conferences and events, and others may follow. We are working with our partners and other events organisers to make sure that these changes work for the wider industry.
We are a publishing, events and data company, and providing up-to-date, accurate information for businesses is what we do. That will not change during the outbreak. In fact we know that businesses require more information, not less, during these times.
KHL journalists based throughout the world are continuing to work with the aim of bringing news and clarity to a rapidly changing situation. Our website has seen record levels of visitors, drawn by our ability to provide a global perspective on events as they unfold.
We have a rolling news story on Coronavirus on our website, providing stories and information from all over the world. We are also now producing a high-frequency newsletter, Construction & Coronavirus, focusing on the impact that COVID-19 is having on construction - on sites, in factories, and in offices. You can subscribe to the newsletter here.
As many of you may be working from home, we remind you that you can read your KHL magazine in digital format. You can subscribe for free here. If you would like us to temporarily redirect your paper copy to a home address, we can do that. Please contact us by e-mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We know that as an industry we can weather this unprecedented event and come back stronger. We send you our best wishes.
