It has been almost three months since we postponed the 2020 NAPA 401(k) Summit to Sept. 10-12, at Universal Orlando. Here’s an update.
When the Summit was postponed, the NAPA Leadership Council determined that moving forward with the Summit would be premised on whether Florida government guidelines allowed for the event. Since then, we have been in continuous contact with our partners at Universal Orlando Resorts, which is participating in the Re-Open Florida Task Force. We also have been working closely with Universal Orlando and Loews Hotels to develop event protocols designed with your health, safety, and comfort in mind.
Based on recent information, the NAPA Leadership Council has concluded that, with the extensive Summit Safety Protocols planned, we will be able to move forward with the Summit in September. We say this knowing that, given how fluid the coronavirus crisis has been, it is possible the situation may change. However, at this time we are confident we can make it happen.
We certainly understand that, regardless of these safety protocols, some of you may not be comfortable attending or traveling to the Summit. We still want you to participate in the 2020 NAPA 401(k) Summit and we have a great Virtual Option so you can. All of the General Sessions, exciting keynote speakers, and a series of breakout workshops will be made available to you live and on a recorded basis. And we hope to see you again in person at the 2021 NAPA 401(k) Summit, April 25-27, at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
For those still planning to attend this year’s Summit, we look forward to seeing you there. And we are excited to let you know that the outstanding speakers in the Summit Agenda, including our keynotes, have all re-confirmed. All the After Dark events, including the Party in the Park at the Wizarding World of Harry Potter, will occur as planned.
Although your Summit registration carried forward, please remember that you still need to rebook your Hotel Reservation, if you have not done so already. And if you haven’t registered for Summit yet, it’s not too late to Register. We have extended the early registration rate through July 31. Also, you will have total flexibility if you decide at a later date you do not want to attend. You can switch to the Virtual Summit Option or cancel without penalty through Aug. 28.
Finally, if you have any questions, Customer Care is always there to assist you. We look forward to seeing you in September.
