KeyCon 2020 Denver - September 20

<< < (42/44) > >>

I have flights booked but if the opportunity to cancel for free comes up Iíll be taking advantage.  Prices have plummeted lately so rebooking will yield a nice savings.

So uh - is this event being cancelled? At this point in time it seems almost irresponsible to continue. Even if shelter at home is lifted - there is no vaccine or commonly available tests for antibodies. People mingling and touching keyboards are basically going to become humongous vectors.

March 2nd - we were at 5 deaths.
March 15th -  65 deaths.
April 1st - 4,000ish deaths.
April 7th (tonight) we're at almost 13,000 deaths.

It's not even about attendees getting sick. It's about the fact people could be transmitting while being completely asymptomatic - and then going back to their regions.

Thanks for the info, and we're obviously watching what's happening just as closely as anyone else. Currently we're working with the venue, which is also understandably slammed. Should have something official to announce in the next week or so.

Hey all, with everything that's going on in the world today, we are pushing back KeyCon to Sept. 20th. EXDO has been incredibly flexible with the date change without any financial ramifications, and this date is hopefully far enough out that we all will be back to some type of new normal by then. Sorry for the upset in plans, but I hope we can all get together a little later in a much safer way.

xondat:
Great to hear - hopefully that's a long enough delay.
