As you know, Building Performance Association has been monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic over the last few weeks and the impact on the 2020 National Home Performance Conference & Trade Show.
In light of the CDC recommendation to cancel large scale gatherings of 50 or more, we are canceling the in-person 2020 National Home Performance Conference & Trade Show in New Orleans, LA. This was not an easy decision, but we are grateful to the home and building performance community for continuing to engage with us throughout this process. We value your continued partnership as we navigate all of this.
Because we feel our industry is too important and the content too valuable to cancel this event entirely, we are considering a number of alternatives to the in-person conference. We're exploring ways to share with you the educational content from presenters who've been working hard on this event over the past year. We are working out the details and will have options for you soon.
Thank you for your patience as we work through this difficult situation alongside you and determine how best to serve the industry. We know you will have a lot of questions about the changes to the conference and we will be providing answers to those questions in the coming days. We have compiled an FAQ about the conference cancellation here.
For now, know that BPA is here to support you, your business, and our industry. We will be posting updates regularly as plans for an alternative conference experience develops. Please check back here and on our social media channels for more information in the days ahead. In the meantime, please do everything you can to remain healthy.
We truly believe that by working together we can navigate these challenging times and come out stronger in the end.
As always, please contact BPA with questions.
All the best,
