With heavy hearts, we have made the difficult decision to cancel 27 Local Biz Camp events scheduled for 2020 out of caution for social distancing and changes arising as a result of the pandemic. It was not an easy decision, and we have important relationships across the country that will be affected – with our regional leaders, sponsors and partners. And we obviously want to consider options to host virtual events – but we are committed, as always, to providing content and experiences that are truly worthy of our participants’ time away from running their own businesses. We expect to offer virtual experiences in place of Local Biz Camp but our knowledge of audience participation, learning patterns, curriculum design and value for time spent has us pausing to make certain that we can deliver on the kind of practical, productive and inspiring content we have always provided at our live events.
All tickets that were purchased for our 2020 season have been refunded, in full. And we will reach out to participants in each of the cities we were preparing to visit with opportunities for learning and engaging with your local business community. Stay tuned!
