Connectaha Covid Announcement
Over the past couple weeks, we've been monitoring the COVID-19 situation in the US. We've had conversations with speakers, sponsors, and other conference organizers. Over the last 24 hours, we've made the painful decision to cancel the 2020 Connectaha conference.
From day one, the conference has been about connecting everyone in the software profession. We feel, at this time, that it would be irresponsible to move forward with having the conference as scheduled on March 27.
While we have not yet ironed out all of the details, there are a few things we do know right now:
For all of our attendees
, you will receive a full refund for the ticket that you purchased. You will be receiving your refund in the next week. If you have any questions about the status of your refund, feel free to contact Brian and Nate firstname.lastname@example.org
If you're flying in to Omaha for this event, most airlines have been working with travelers to change or cancel their tickets.
For our speakers
, we know first hand that you have invested a lot of time and energy leading up to Connectaha. You've spent time crafting and perfecting your talk, as well as practicing in preparation. More than that, you've been emotionally invested in Connectaha 2020 sharing & engaging on social media. For that, we will be eternally grateful. If you're still interested in giving your talk, let us know and we will try and connect you with various user groups. If you're interested, reach out email@example.com
Without the investments of our sponsors in Connectaha and the community, we wouldn't have made it as far as we did. We are grateful for you. You will be receiving an email from us shortly as we work to coordinate your refunds. We want to thank you for your commitment and we hope that we are fortunate enough to work with you next year.
More than anything we didn’t want to cancel this event. We’ve worked hard all year long to create an event that would help the software industry thrive in Omaha. At the end of the day we feel it was the right thing to do, and we thank you for your understanding. If you have questions, please reach out firstname.lastname@example.org
