IDEA World 2020 – Event Status Update (4/14/2020)
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. We are committed to keeping you updated and will reach out should there be any changes to the event taking place in Anaheim as scheduled.
Please read the full announcement from Rebecca Garity, Senior Director of Events – IDEA Health & Fitness Association.
I hope this message finds you healthy and safe during this COVID-19 crisis. Like many of you, we are navigating through this uncharted territory and keeping close watch on things as they develop. In order to be as prepared as possible, we are exploring options and contingency plans IF we are not able to get together in-person at the IDEA World Convention scheduled for July 8-12, in Anaheim, CA. Through part of this exercise the host hotels may have prematurely cancelled your hotel room. We are in contact with them and are working through this. We apologize for any confusion this has caused.
We are committed to keeping you updated and will reach out should there be any changes to the event taking place in Anaheim as scheduled.
We are incredibly sensitive to the effects that COVID-19 (coronavirus) is having on health and safety concerns, as well as around commitments to future events. We completely understand these concerns, and we are being as proactive as possible, dedicated to actively communicating with you every step of the way.
We want to tell you that we are proceeding with our IDEA® World Convention as scheduled July 8–12, 2020, and have no plans to postpone or cancel at this time.
Please know that we are closely monitoring developments and will adhere to any policies put forth by the U.S. Government and the City of Anaheim.
