Update on the Forum 2020

Last updated: April 1, 7:51 pm ET

Please be advised that The Financial Brand Forum 2020, originally scheduled for April 27-29, has been postponed.

At this time, Las Vegas remains shut down. That, of course, means we aren’t able to reschedule the event — at least not right now.

There are also still too many uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic to plan an event. No one can make any commitments until the lockdown is lifted, Las Vegas reopens, “social distancing” restrictions are loosened, airlines resume service, and the CDC tells everyone it’s safe to travel again.

We are hopeful that we will be able to evaluate our options sometime in May. Just as soon as we have more information to share, we promise we will give you another update. In the meantime, here’s what you need to know:

Hotel Reservations. The Aria has cancelled all hotel reservations made by attendees. If you booked through our hotel room block, you paid a one-night room deposit when you made your reservation. All deposits have been returned, and will be reflected as a refund on your credit card statement. You will need to rebook your hotel reservations once we have a new date confirmed.

Registration Fees. Registration fees for the Forum 2020 will continue to be held on your behalf until a future date has been determined. At that time, we’ll reach out to confirm the new dates with you. If the dates don’t work with your schedule, we’ll issue you a refund.

Thanks for your patience and understanding as we all work through this difficult situation. Like you, we are all doing the best that we can under extremely challenging circumstances. But we’ll get through it — together.

Most sincerely,

Jeffry Pilcher
The Financial Brand
