Statement about Coronavirus (COVID-19)

March 13, 2020

We want to start by thanking you for your patience as we continue to monitor the latest developments and implement our plans for the COVID-19 crisis. As you can imagine, this is a very dynamic situation that changes daily – even hourly, in some cases.

On Tuesday, March 10, 2020, Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker declared a State of Emergency and issued a number of guidelines with regard to travel, telecommuting, cancelling events and more. With the state guidelines, as well as feedback from our key partners in mind, we have made the decision not to move forward with an in-person conference in Boston on April 16. Instead, we are planning a fully virtual experience on that same date. We are excited about the opportunity to provide the inspiration and connection that the Simmons Leadership Conference has always been known for, but in a new format that accommodates our current environment. In this time of uncertainty and isolation, inspiring and lifting each other up is more important than ever.

In order to provide you with as much notice as possible, we have chosen to share this information before we are in a position to provide full details on the virtual experience. More information will be forthcoming.

Thank you for your support as we make this transition! Please let us know of any questions or concerns via email.
