With recent good news that the U.S. projects vaccine supply for all adults by May, we are seeing the first solid metric in more than a year that suggests it will be possible to hold an in-person convention this fall. We have heard from many members who are eager to get back to the business of networking, celebrating, exploring, and learning side-by-side with their peers. While we’ve discovered valuable new tools for gathering virtually and effectively, there is no doubt we’re looking forward to the opportunity to see you all in-person again as soon as it’s safe to do so.

We have all come to understand that this situation continues to be fluid. Vaccine efficacy and availability, the development and spread of new variants, and additional spikes in cases cannot be controlled by any individual. Each state, municipality, and organization has their own regulations, policies, and procedures to manage. Each individual has their own reservations, conditions, and circumstances to consider. With this in mind, a commitment to participate in convention is as flexible as the situation. Cancelation of any registration due to concerns for one’s safety or wellbeing will be met with understanding and flexibility. Furthermore, should the in-person event be canceled each attendee, sponsor, and exhibitor will have the option to receive a full refund, credit towards whatever virtual event replaces it, or a credit for next year’s event.

So, we cautiously and optimistically welcome you to meet us in St. Louis on September 16th. Hotel reservations are open. Event registration will open soon. As we work to provide each attendee and exhibitor with a bit more room, attendance will be limited.

Convention activities will be based out of the Hyatt Regency St. Louis at the Arch. You can read up on their commitment to guests’ safety at hyatt.com/care-and-cleanliness.

Situated at the confluence of the Missouri and Mississippi rivers, St. Louis is known for its baseball, beer and the Gateway Arch. It was already a 40-year-old river town when Thomas Jefferson signed the Louisiana Purchase and it’s where explorers Lewis and Clark began their westward trip in 1804. It was during the 1904 World’s Fair, held in the city's Forrest Park neighborhood, the world first saw electric plugs, the X-ray machine, and the ice cream cone. The same year, St. Louis was the first U.S. city, and only the third in the world, to host the modern Olympics. Today, St. Louis boasts a metropolitan GDP of more than $160 billion and is home to nine of the ten Fortune 500 companies based in Missouri.
