The safety of our attendees is our number one priority. We are taking the most aggressive measures possible to ensure that the well-being and health of our attendees is maintained at all times. Below are the steps we’re taking as we work with our staff and partners at The Ritz-Carlton. We will deliver a 5-star event that is safe and healthy.
We are already on pace to sell out. We have plenty of space at The Ritz-Carlton but we will limit in-person attendance this year. So, if you want to reserve an in-person spot, book your registration now before we are full. (You can cancel and get a refund as described below)
We have secured more than double the meeting space at The Ritz-Carlton than we had at our 2020 event to ensure that we can properly social distance while still networking and connecting with each other in-person. The property is located in an open-air environment on the Pacific Ocean, which allows for plenty of breathing room so our guests can spread out safely, and comfortably, while still doing business and networking.
We will strictly follow all health and safety protocols as described by local, state, and CDC guidelines. In addition, our partners at The Ritz-Carlton also adhere to a 5-star safety and health protocol, as detailed here.
Everyone that attends our event will be required to follow the strictest guidelines as defined at the time of the event from leading global and local health authorities. This will include thermal event entrance screening/monitoring, social distancing, frequent hand washing, and other recommended protocols.
The market is overwhelmingly telling us they want, and need, an in-person event. And we’re confident we can pull it off. However, if travel and group restrictions prevent the event from being organized fully in-person, here is our backup plan:
In-Person Hubs + Premier Digital Broadcast + Online Partnering + True Virtual Engagement
We’ll host smaller in-person hubs plus we’ll include virtual attendance options to create a full global reach and engagement.
CALIFORNIA | Dana Point, CA | The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel
NEW ENGLAND AREA | Boston, MA | 5-Star Resort Being Contracted
OTHER | Other In-Person Hubs TBA | Hosted By Event Partners & Sponsors
GLOBAL | Anyone Outside In-Person Hubs Will Engage Virtually
We will make our final decision to stick with In-Person or go Hybrid on November 17th 2020, exactly three months out from event. This will give everyone plenty of time to make travel decisions and/or cancel registration if desired (No Risk Refund Policy Below).
If we are unable to host the event as planned or if you are unable to travel due to a COVID-specific issue, we will offer a full refund less a processing fee.
