Alberta Pork Congress 2020: Event Cancellation Notice

174

As we continue to learn more about the COVID-19 pandemic and monitor the global situation, the Board of Directors of the Alberta Pork Congress have come to a critical decision point. As this unprecedented global crisis unfolds in the coming weeks and months it is vitally important to us that everyone is safe, we want to ensure we do not put anyone at risk and make certain that we are not contributing to the further spread of the virus. Therefore, we conclude this can only be achieved by cancelling the 2020 Alberta Pork Congress. 

This decision has been incredibly difficult and comes only through intense consultation and discussion. We have reviewed all alternative options and postponing is not viable. With the Alberta Government declaring a public health emergency and enacting restrictions on all events over 50 people, travel, social distancing and isolation are paramount at this time.

The Board encourages all exhibitors to defer their 2020 registration fee and payment to June 9th & 10th, 2021. Your booth location will remain the same for 2021 and you will not need to re-book. If your company would prefer a refund, refunds will be issued for booth space, electrical units and advertising only. The membership portion will not be refunded as this is a not for profit association and we are mandated by our bylaws to charge an annual membership fee ($250/year). This will also ensure the financial security of the Congress. The board and organizers are committed to being proactive and socially responsible on behalf of the pork industry.

Please let us know by reply email if you would like to defer your registration or would like a refund.

If you have any questions, please let us know.

Kind Regards,
