2020 IDEA World and Club & Studio Summit cancellation Announcement

April 13, 2020

2020 IDEA® World Convention Cancellation Announcement

It is with a very heavy heart that we must cancel the 2020 IDEA World Convention, July 8-12, in Anaheim, CA. Despite making every effort to host the event as planned or to postpone it, the reality is that it cannot take place due to uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 crisis.

Government and public health officials have yet to offer clarity as to when the current bans on large gatherings and California’s shelter-in-place order will be lifted, which makes it impossible to know when IDEA World can be hosted safely. While this is a difficult decision, cancelling the in-person event is the right thing to do given the extreme and uncertain conditions.

As ever, IDEA remains committed to delivering the Gold Standard in education, support and resources for fitness professionals and fitness business owners during this unprecedented time. We are shifting our focus to explore avenues to deliver the exceptional content planned for IDEA World plus the specialty content planned for IDEA World Club & Studio Summit, IDEA World Nutrition & Behavior Change Summit and IDEA Success Academy. In the meantime, please visit our COVID-19 Support Center for updates, tailored resources and information pertaining to the pandemic.

Thank you for your patience and understanding. We stand united with you, and we look forward to seeing you at the 2021 IDEA World Convention, July 7–11, in Anaheim, CA—if not sooner in the virtual world.

Keep Inspiring (from your home)

Rebecca Garity

Senior Director of Events, IDEA Health & Fitness Association
