Supply Chain Spring Conference Canceled
It is with great regret that we announce we will not be holding our Supply Chain conference on May 14-15th. Due to the World Health Organization recently declaring the COVID-19 viral disease a pandemic, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's recommendation to limit gatherings, the U.S. Surgeon General's recommendation to avoid nonessential travel, and the State of Illinois' emergency declarations, similar to the National Restaurant Association Show in Chicago, we have been forced to cancel due to force majeure. We will be focusing our efforts around planning for our October conference in Orlando and hope to see you there.
While we are disappointed to not be able to host our communities and sponsors in May, we believe it is the required decision for everyone's safety and will continue to support our members and the industry.
For those of you that have paid for registration, we will refund 100% because we want to put money back in operators' pockets during these difficult times. Expect to see your refund over the next few weeks. Once processed, credit-card refunds typically take 3-5 days to process.
With the changes in our industry, education and community will be more important than ever. We have worked with our steering committees and others to assemble excellent content and will continue to share that with the community. Look forward to more digital resources and ways to engage throughout the year. Keep an eye out for registration details for our Fall conference on October 20th and 21st in Orlando, Florida.
To ensure that restaurants have the latest information about coronavirus, the National Restaurant Association created this industry-specific guidance for owners and operators.
Thank you for being a part of our community. We are here to support you as we all work through these difficult times. We will continue our efforts to help our industry connect, learn, and lead. We hope to see you in Orlando in October!
