Consistent with the health and safety guidelines being implemented across Canada, and with new directives from the Alberta government, the decision has been taken to cancel Sport Events Congress 2020. Effective immediately, the Alberta government is asking all large gatherings or international events in the province that have more than 250 attendees, which includes SEC20, to cancel their activities.
With a record 433 registered delegates, an outstanding speaker line-up and equally entertaining social events, we are disappointed not to be able to proceed with SEC20. We thank Edmonton Events, Edmonton Convention Centre, Westin and Courtyard Marriott hotels for their support for our decision. We fully intend to ensure SEC returns to Edmonton in the future!
This is one of many tough decisions that are being made across the country and around the world. With such a rapid spread of the COVID-19 virus, we are committed to following all of the recommended guidelines and measures to slow its spread and maintain the health and well-being of our delegates and employees at hotel and convention facilities.
We will be in contact with all delegates with relevant information as we sort out the many details over the next several days.
Thank you for your patience and stay safe!
