We are extremely disappointed to announce that Unconvention 2020 is postponed. The event was scheduled for March 30 – April 1, 2020.
As early as last week we felt confident moving forward with the event amid concerns around COVID-19. With the World Health Organization announcing that COVID-19 is now officially a Pandemic, we have no choice but to postpone the event.
Ultimately, the safety of our tribe (that’s you!) comes first. We don’t feel right putting anyone’s health and well-being in jeopardy. We also want to ensure that our attendees are given a true Unconvention experience, and we can’t deliver that with COVID-19 safety protocols in effect (I mean, could you imagine a no-hug zone at Unconvention?!).
British Columbia COVID-19 Update
As of March 10, cases in British Columbia have increased to 39. While the risk to Canadians is still considered low, this is a large jump over the 12 reported cases last week and we can’t predict what the situation will look like by the end of this month. Canada is continuing to increase and mandate new travel advisories and with the majority of our attendees travelling from the USA we don’t want to put anyone at risk.
We know many of you were looking forward to this event. We are reviewing all options and hope to reschedule the event for later this year. We will be in touch as soon as we have a new date secured.
We appreciate your understanding and flexibility as we all deal with these unique circumstances together.
