So far we have refunded or credited just about 50% of all delegates. We have been focusing first on people who registered to attend the conference and will be moving next to exhibitors and sponsors. Given the current COVID-19 restrictions and the challenges of reaching people we are very proud to have gotten to this many folks. We are continuing to work on the refunding process, but ask your patience as we handle this complex and time-intensive process. We are currently on track to have everyone refunded or credited within 30 days of the conference cancellation. Thank you for your patience and your understanding and we look forward to seeing you at the 2021 Western Conference on Safety. In the meantime, stay safe and healthy.
At 3:45pm today, March 12, 2020, The British Columbia Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry and the Provincial Health Minister Adrian Dix, directed that all gatherings of more than 250 people be canceled. The 2020 Western Conference on Safety is a gathering of over 1100 people. Accordingly, and as directed, the 2020 Western Conference on Safety is now cancelled.
Full refunds will be issued to everyone who has paid a conference delegate registration, or a tradeshow booth, or a sponsorship fee to the Pacific Safety Center Ltd to participate in the 2020 Western Conference on Safety.
More information on this will be posted shortly.
