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.
If you booked your hotel room(s) through WEF’s blocks at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati for Odors & Air Pollutants and the Stormwater Symposium, or at the Hilton Minneapolis for Residuals & Biosolids, your hotel room(s) will be automatically cancelled by the properties. If you booked your room(s) in another hotel or outside WEF’s blocks at the Hyatt Regency Cincinnati or Hilton Minneapolis, please contact the property directly to cancel your reservation.
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 email@example.com.
