Your safety, as well as that of your family, is of paramount concern to WISPA when we hold any in-person events. WISPAPALOOZA is our largest yearly event, bringing together 2000+ individuals to celebrate the WISP community in Las Vegas. It is essential to our job and our commitment to you that WISPAPALOOZA not only be educational, beneficial to your bottom line and enjoyable, but, most importantly, safe, too.
As part of our efforts to ensure your safety, we have been carefully monitoring the COVID-19 numbers in Nevada and, in particular, Clark County/Las Vegas where WISPAPALOOZA is held. As they stand now, Clark County has some of the highest positivity rates in the nation. Event and other restrictions currently apply, and with the numbers being as they are trending, in all likelihood similar restrictions will remain through the fall. Consequently, out of an abundance of caution and concern for your safety, we are canceling WISPAPALOOZA 2020.
To this end, WISPA will refund the full the cost of all attendee conference passes. Simultaneously, we are working with vendors who have currently reserved a booth.
We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you, but we are comforted in the fact that this is the right decision to make for all attendees and WISPA staff. Las Vegas is indeed a betting town, but your safety is not a bet we’d care to wager. There will be another WISPAPALOOZA, but only at a time when it is safe for all of us to attend.
Please feel free to contact me with any further questions you may have.
