The UNLEASH Group has concluded that the global outbreak of Covid-19 places us in a Force Majeure situation. This follows a series of announcements, including CDC guidance to cancel gatherings of over 50 people, the statewide closure of non-essential business in Nevada, the temporary closure of the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, and various international travel bans.
As a result, we have taken the decision to cancel UNLEASH America’s 2020 event, planned May 12 – 13.
We have been monitoring the situation closely so as to act in the best interests of our community. We are informed by discussions with our partners, as well as the most recent state and national guidance. We recognize that this is an unprecedented situation for us all, but the safety of our partners, delegates, and team require this decision.
We are working to provide alternative solutions to our participants, which we will share as soon as we are able. Please expect to hear from our team over the coming week to discuss your options.
Regarding UNLEASH World, Paris, October 20 – 21, we expect to stage the event as planned, though we will carefully monitor the situation as it develops.
