After carefully weighing the situation, the EE2020 meeting chairs and other leaders in the E-Enterprise and Exchange Network governance have concluded that we cannot safely conduct an in-person meeting on May 12-14, 2020. Regrettably, we must cancel EE2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
This is certainly disappointing and unwelcome news, but it is clearly the right thing to do. We are committed to working with our amazing lineup of speakers to explore new options for sharing everyone’s work and stories. While a rescheduled in-person meeting will be our ultimate goal, we cannot yet say when that would be feasible. In the days and weeks ahead, we will be considering options for delivering some of the planned content virtually via webinars. We kindly ask for your patience while we undertake a process to determine the appropriate approach and timing. Once we have more information to share, we will be back in touch with more details.
We will automatically cancel existing EE2020 meeting registrations. If you have already made travel arrangements with an airline or the hotel, please take steps to cancel those. The hotel will accept cancellations without penalty up to 72 hours in advance of your arrival date. Most airlines have implemented flexible cancellation policies and have waived cancellation fees and penalties.
We promise to make the most of this unfortunate situation and find alternate ways for our community to connect. In the meantime, please take care of yourselves, your loved ones, and the people in your community. Thank you and be well.
