Important Information Regarding the 2020 VRMA International Conference in Orlando
July 30, 2020
We have been closely monitoring the continued impact of COVID-19 and, in particular, the situation in Florida.
After much review, dialogue with key stakeholders, conversations with our Disney partners, and considerable evaluation of the situation and potential options, we have decided to make the unfortunate decision to cancel the 2020 International Conference.
We know that this event continually provides a valuable in-person opportunity for our attendees to learn, network, and socialize with each other.
At the same time, the well-being of our constituents is of utmost importance and our top priority.
The ongoing spread of COVID-19 continues to cause significant concern for health safety, along with travel advisories, event cancellations in Florida, and government health warnings.
It has become clear that the most responsible path forward is to forgo an in-person gathering in Orlando at this time.
We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience that this change may cause you and your business.
While this international public health situation is out of our control, we recognize the disappointment that comes with having to cancel something we look forward to. Thank you to our community of speakers, sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees for your understanding and support.
At this time, in response to feedback from our members and partners, we are planning to provide you with additional virtual touchpoints to engage throughout the remainder of 2020. There will not be a virtual conference replacement for the in-person Orlando event.
In addition, we will continue to monitor the situation and keep you regularly informed of any decisions that may impact future VRMA events.
Please let us know how we can help as we continue to navigate the road to recovery together.
