We have been monitoring the news closely in regard to the novel COVID-19 virus. Unfortunately, many of our friends in the conference industry have had to cancel or postpone their upcoming events due to this heath concern. These conferences were set to take place in the next few months.
As Circles Conference takes place each year in mid-September, we have decided to go forth as planned for our 2020 conference in Richardson, TX. We cannot predict the future, only progress with hope that the virus will be less of a health concern as the conference nears. We have spoken to our venues and vendors, and they are comfortable moving forward at this point.
We will communicate with our attendees as the situation progresses, and we are prepared to take the measures necessary to ensure our speakers, attendees, vendors and staff are safe to travel and enjoy the conference.
Circles Conference has become what it is because of community. We cherish community and foster it in every way we can imagine. At Circles Conference, we encourage connection and networking. Due to the serious health threat COVID-19 is said to impose, our culture of community this year could be at risk. As stated above, we will make adjustments to the schedule or postpone the conference if this becomes a possibility for us.
We have created a place for you to view updates on our response to COVID-19. Please let us know if you have questions or concerns.
We encourage you to follow the CDC’s recommendations for disease prevention, such as washing your hands often and staying home if you feel unwell.
