We are in this together.
Dear Members, Supporters, and Friends,
We are all in this together. The World Health Organization (WHO) has declared that COVID-19 is now a global pandemic and it is expected to spread rapidly around the world. We all will face major personal, professional, and business challenges in the coming weeks.
USPAACC follows the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s official advisory on health, meetings, and travel. Your health and safety are our top priority, and we will reschedule our 35th Anniversary CelebrASIAN Business + Procurement Conference at the Marriott in North Bethesda, Maryland on June 2-4, 2020, to a later date this year. We will advise you when new dates are determined.
Meanwhile, our work on your behalf continues. We will keep you informed on alternative plans to bring to you the information, business intelligence, connections, networking and business opportunities expected of us - your premier business development organization. We are optimistic that we all will pull through.
If you have already registered for the Conference, your registration will remain valid for the rescheduled event; if you are a sponsor and/or speaker, we will answer any further questions you may have.
