CDC guidelines calls to cancel HBLC 2020 due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Every year, we look forward to connecting with our benefits and wellness community at the Health & Benefits Leadership Conference. As always, our top priority is the health and safety of our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, partners, employees as well as hundreds of people who help make HBLC an extraordinary and unique event.
The CDC recommends canceling in-person large events and mass gatherings that consist of 50 people or more for the next 8 weeks. This recommendation, along with the indefinite closure of our conference's venue — Aria Resort & Casino and the travel restrictions placed on our attendees, speakers and exhibitors has led us to the only responsible decision, to cancel this year's Health & Benefits Leadership Conference.
To our 2020 registrants, we appreciate your patience as we work through communicating further details regarding your registration. If you have any individual concerns, please contact our customer service department at 1-800-727-1227 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
FRIDAY, MARCH 6, 2020
HRE's Health & Benefits Leadership Conference will take place April 15 - 17, 2020 in Las Vegas.
The wellbeing of the HBLC community of attendees, speakers, exhibitors and staff is our highest priority. We are closely monitoring the latest news, government recommendations and announcements related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and its potential impact to our annual conference. We are implementing all CDC recommendations for preparing for large events while taking precautions to ensure a safe, hygienic environment for all attendees in the conference venues from the meeting rooms and expo to the hotels and restaurants. We are working closely with the Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Aria Resort & Casino, and Clark County leadership and local medical experts as they remain supportive of large-scale events being held, including ours. Currently most other large events scheduled for Las Vegas this April are continuing as planned.
While a few of our attendees and exhibitors have shared concerns and some of our international guests will be unable to attend due to travel restrictions, we are hearing that the overwhelming majority of our exhibitors are looking forward to attending the show and our attendee registrations continue on pace with the normal patterns we see year-over-year. In response, we have determined to move forward with the event.
If you have any individual concerns, please contact our customer service department at 1-800-727-1227 or email email@example.com.
