Annual Conference & Expo (ACE2020)


MPINCC ACE 2020 Update:


MPI Community, 


“The show must go on!” While this has been the motto of the ACE2020 Planning Team and Chapter Leadership for the past month as the COVID-19 news began to spread, the current directive by the city of San Francisco, banning "non-essential group events" at any city-owned facilities for the next two weeks has caused us to make a difficult decision. We regret to announce the cancellation of ACE2020.Knowing that the earliest the ban, if not extended, would be lifted is two days prior to load-in and taking into consideration increasing concerns over travel restrictions, current health and safety guidance and business sentiment of exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and attendees, we came to this conclusion.   


We know that at times like these our industry has to come together and we realize this decision may be a disappointment to many of you. Our goal was to gather together with you in 14 short days at ACE2020 to celebrate our community. That said, the timing of the ban was a key determinant as many of us have experienced last minute cancellations and postponements in the past few weeks and understand how disruptive those can be. We will be reaching out regarding refunds or credits to all registrants in the coming weeks. Your patience is appreciated as we work through the process as efficiently and thoughtfully as possible. 


As an organization fueled by volunteers, the MPINCC community is strong, resilient and built on relationships that shine brightly (and loudly) during our chapter events. All this echoes our 2019-2020 theme, Here You Belong. We look forward to seeing everyone at our upcoming events -- the May education program and our Gala on June 4. 


Until then, 

Chapter Leadership & ACE2020 Planning Team
