During this time of national crisis, we have painstakingly deliberated over the fate of our upcoming Workforce L&D Event, taking into consideration expert guidance and everyone’s best interests.

With those factors in mind, we have made the decision to cancel the 2020 Workforce L&D Event originally scheduled for November 9-11, 2020, in Kissimmee, Florida. While we looked forward to seeing familiar faces and providing you with an exceptional curriculum, the safety of our customers, our conference faculty, and our staff comes first.

Again, our apologies about the cancellation, but as you know, safety must come first. We look forward to serving you in the future.

Be well.
