Events Update (March 11, 2020)

Wednesday, March 11, 2020 

Dear ICSC Members and event attendees, 

ICSC is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation with the health and safety of our members being our top and guiding priority. Over the last few days, there has been an increase in new cases and rising concern about the spread of the virus. Just today, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared COVID-19 a pandemic. Given these rapidly accelerating developments, in consultation with member leadership, including ICSC's Chair, Vice Chair and Executive Board, we have made the difficult decision to suspend all ICSC events through April 10, 2020. During this time, we expect much greater clarity and guidance from government and health officials as we evaluate future ICSC events.

As of this moment, RECon, which runs from May 17 - 19, 2020, is scheduled to proceed as planned. However, the fluidity of the situation and future circumstances could require a change to this plan. The RECon cancellation deadline has been extended to April 13, 2020. We will continue to frequently communicate with member leadership and the Executive Board who are actively monitoring the situation.

We recognize the impact that suspending ICSC events may have on you and your businesses. Many of our member companies have travel bans in place, as well as restrictions on attending large gatherings through March or early April. Additionally, a number of states of emergency have been called across the country, many event organizers have postponed industry gatherings, and schools and universities are moving to virtual environments. It was after carefully considering all of these factors that the decision was made to suspend our events until April 10, 2020.

We are clearly operating in the midst of unique times with rapidly developing circumstances that require difficult decisions and consistent communication. You have our continued commitment to communicate with you in a timely and active fashion.

Thank you for your membership and your support. We wish you, your families and colleagues continued safety and health.
