At the beginning of the year, we announced that our annual Asysco Technology Conference would be from the 20th to the 22nd of October, in Chicago. Since then, the COVID-19 infections have had a major impact on the world and everyone’s lives.
Even today, the impact is still very much there. Looking at the current situation and expectations for the October timeframe, we unfortunately had to decide that the ATC2020 in Chicago is not achievable: Travel restrictions prevent us from both organising and attending the event ourselves. Even if these restrictions were to be lifted, there’s too much uncertainty and not enough time to organise the high quality event we strive for.
Rather than cancelling the event, we are postponing the event to early Q2 2021, in Chicago. That way, we will be able to reuse current efforts and investments in the most effective way.
We will however organise a (limited, 1 to 2 hours) on-line update session instead, in Q3 2020, so stay tuned for the invitation!
At the moment, we are coordinating with all the various parties involved (Hotel, restaurant, Microsoft) in order to find the most workable date and expect to be able to announce this in the late summer timeframe.
I hope that this is not causing too much inconvenience and look forward to seeing you at the ATC2021.
