Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Cancellation of the 2020 Beer Insights Spring Conference, Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Why was the 2020 Beer Insights Spring Conference scheduled for May 27-28 canceled?
Due to the outbreak of Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), numerous public health and governmental agencies have urged organizations to limit or eliminate events where possible. Beer Marketer’s Insights made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel the Conference and all related events to protect the health and wellbeing of our attendees, speakers and staff.
Will the Annual Beer Insights Spring Conference be rescheduled?
No. Due to the uncertainty around when it will be safe to travel and attend a large meeting, we made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Spring meeting. We plan to hold our annual Beer Insights Seminar in New York City on November 15-16, 2020, and to hold next year’s Beer Insights Spring Conference at the Ritz-Carlton Chicago next June 2-3, 2021.
Will the Annual Conference & Expo be held in a virtual format?
We will be exploring alternate virtual programs with Conference presenters and volunteer leadership as part of our ongoing commitment to providing beer industry professionals with the information you need to run your businesses. Additional information will be shared over the coming weeks about potential opportunities.
Will I receive a refund for my Conference registration now that the event is canceled?
To ease financial considerations that this cancellation may cause our participants, Beer Marketer’s Insights has instituted a flexible refund policy that gives registrants the option to apply their registration fee to the 2020 Beer Insights Seminar in New York City on November 15-16, to the 2021 Beer Insights Spring Conference in Chicago next June 2-3, to apply payment to any subscription, book or webinar orders within 14 months of the cancellation (April 13, 2020) or receive a refund less $100 processing fees.
