Spring Conference is Happening

The 2020 EGSA Spring Conference is proceeding as planned at Planet Hollywood Casino Resort, Las Vegas, March 15-17. We continue to take our direction from global, federal, and local health officials, like the CDC and WHO, which do not have travel notices or restrictions on public gatherings for the continental US. Additionally, we want to remind you that we do not have international travelers coming in.


Our cutoff date for refunds is February 21, 2020 per the registration policy and guidelines. At this time, we have given our final guarantees to Planet Hollywood based on your attendance. We understand there are attendees and/or exhibitors that may decide not to attend and we respect everyone’s desire to do what’s best, however no refunds will be issued unless there are federal travel restrictions or restrictions on public (business) gatherings within the continental US.

Stay Informed and Be Prepared

It is our goal to create a healthy and safe environment where our attendees and exhibitors can conduct business and strengthen relationships. We are in communication with the Southern Nevada Health District (SNHD) and the Nevada Department of Health and Human Services, who both understand that the health and safety of our attendees is our top priority. According to SNHD, there are currently no confirmed cases of coronavirus in the state of Nevada and all tests have come back negative. We will continue to work with all show partners, including Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas Expo and the airport authority to ensure the safety of all participants is the highest priority at the event.


Below are some resources for you to monitor and stay up-to-date. We will also inform you of any EGSA status changes.
