Source: An Update on G.I.R.L. 2020
Greetings from the G.I.R.L. 2020 Team! We hope this update finds you and your family safe, well and adjusting to our new work and play “normal” in the best possible ways. Many of you have asked questions regarding G.I.R.L. 2020 and we wanted to provide some updates.
Q. Will G.I.R.L. 2020 be canceled or postponed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic?
At this time, we are continuing to move forward with Global Roundtable and G.I.R.L. 2020. Decisions will be made regarding Global Roundtable and G.I.R.L. 2020 closer to the event date. An assessment of the next steps will be conducted in late Spring/early Summer.
If we must cancel the event, registration fees will be refunded in total or in part, depending upon the date and circumstances of the cancellation decision. We encourage everyone to please be mindful of domestic and international travel restrictions and vendor cancellation policies as they prepare for this event.
Q. Have there been any adjustments to the Trendsetter package deadline?
In response to your inquiries about the timing of registration impacted by the COVID-19 crisis, we are extending key benefits associated with Trendsetter registration into the Early Bird registration period (April 1 – July 31). Therefore, you and your council will be able to take advantage of the same price and benefits until July 31st!
Key benefits to be extended include:
- Payment Plan Option
- Link to register for Signature and Breakout sessions early
- Special discounts/offers from G.I.R.L. EXPO exhibitors
When will hotel reservations be available?
We also want to provide an update on hotel requests. Many hotels in the Orlando area have closed for the months of April and May and are not taking any reservations, present or future until they reopen.
Therefore, the individual housing selection portal will also not open until June 1 or thereafter. We will continue to provide updates as they are made available.
Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and continued support!
