The Farm Equipment Manufacturers Association regrets to announce it has canceled Supply Summit 2020 in Albuquerque.
This decision was not an easy one. It was a response not only to the coronavirus pandemic but also to a precipitous fall in the attendance rate. Many of you canceled your participation after your companies placed restrictions on meetings and travel. In that context, we felt the networking value of the meeting would not be what attendees expect or deserve.
You should receive an email from the Hyatt Regency today confirming cancellation of your room. The Board of Directors decided today to refund attendees’ registration fees. Expect to hear from us soon about the process for receiving those refunds.
The issue that ultimately caused the cancellation of this meeting is an issue that will make such a meeting even more valuable as you seek to adapt to changes in your supply chains. The Association is considering options for bringing Summit content to you in a different format or perhaps integrating it into an upcoming convention.
As the dust settles, we will be in touch with more information. In the meantime, mark your calendars. We are looking forward to a healthy gathering in Orlando this fall from Oct. 27 to 29.
