During this unique, challenging, and stressful time, we want you to know that WEF is here to provide resources for our members and make decisions that are in our collective best interest. The importance of minimizing the spread of the coronavirus; its expanding reach making it impossible for us to deliver high-quality programs and networking opportunities as promised; concerns expressed by conference participants; and travel restrictions by organizations and government agencies contributed to our decision to cancel several events.
Based on the unprecedented nature of this situation, within 45 days, WEF will issue full refunds to attendees, exhibitors, and sponsors of all fees paid to WEF for these events.
Our staff are meeting daily and closely monitoring news from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); World Health Organization (WHO); and state and local health authorities in the destinations that are scheduled to host us. See below for how we are preparing to produce safe & healthy future events and responding to common questions. If you have further questions or other concerns, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
