During these difficult times and disappointing cancellations, we reminisce on years past, and look forward to the future.
Notice from Jay Kirk, 2020 Tri-Con Chair
After several weeks of thoughtful consideration and with great reluctance and sadness, we must announce the cancellation of the 2020 Tri-Association Conference (Tri-Con).
The planning committee had hoped that the pandemic would not be as severe as was first forecast, but we were finally faced with several issues that made this decision necessary. Among them:
Protecting public health is at the core of what we do. With the continued uncertainties associated with the coronavirus pandemic, it is hard to imagine gathering in our fantastic exhibit hall, or crowding into one of our top-notch technical sessions, or chilling on the beach at Seacrets without potential health risks. And that is compounded by the those uncertainties our attendees are facing with travel restrictions and budget cuts.
Although this postponement may be the right thing to do, we wish it were not the case. Many of you put a great deal of volunteer time, creativity, and passion into the effort that would have made the 2020 Tri-Con an outstanding event. Some have planned brilliant presentations to be shared in the technical program while still others have developed innovative technologies and services that should have been seen on the exhibit floor. Please know that we are so incredibly grateful for your efforts, and we will be back next year stronger than ever!
