The whole world is trying to figure out how to respond to the coronavirus threat. As a result, we're starting to hear news of procurement industry event cancellations. We will track news of them in this post, making updates as the news comes in.
Many of the events listed below are going 'virtual', so click on the link for each event to read their official announcement.
If you are running an event or hear word of a cancellation that is not listed here, please contact me here.
** A new CDC Directive (released 3/15/2020) recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States. If there is an event you been waiting for a decision on, and it occurs between now and May 8, 2020, that pretty much covers it.
