One of the last industry events still on the docket for 2020, the Total Tech Summit, has been cancelled due to COVID-19. The 13-year-old event, which includes the CE Pro Summit tract, was planned for November 9-11, 2020 in Cleveland.
“Amid the challenging circumstances arising from COVID-19, it has become clear that hosting Total Tech Summit this November is not possible,” says Emerald, managers of the event, and owners of CE Pro and its sister publications Security Sales & Integration and Commercial Integrator, which are also part of the hosted event. The summit originated as the CE Pro 100 Summit and is for invited guests only to network and meet with vendors.
“The cancellation of the live event is due to developments regarding the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the latest government data, measures and guidelines on the phased reopening plans in the U.S.; current restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by states and other government and public health authorities; and the various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees affecting attendees and participating companies,” according to Emerald.
The statement continues, “While we are extremely disappointed that we won’t be able to meet in person this year, our commitment to bringing together the integration community for learning, business building, and partnership creation is stronger than ever.
“As part of our commitment to you and the needs of the industry, we are pleased to offer Total Tech Summit Virtual as an online experience to provide you connections and insight,” say show organizers.
