2020 WELL Conference Gets Cancelled


Live events of WELL Conference are cancelled until 2021, virtual possibilities are under consideration though.

Dailycsr.com – 30 May 2020 – Looking into the statistics on the current COVID-19 situation as informed by the “Centers for Disease Control and the World Health Organization”, it has been decided with “careful consideration” to cancel the 2020 “WELL Conference”. The inauguration of the same was scheduled for March 2020 which was again rescheduled to “August 16-19, 2020, at the Fairmont Princess in Scottsdale, Arizona”.
Here are the names of some of the partners of the WELL Conference, “the International WELL Building Institute (IWBI), The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID), and Emerald”, as they all look for possibilities of future events like “virtual event and dates for 2021”. New information will be made available soon while all registration fees will be 100% refunded.
In the words of the Chairman as well as the chief executive officer of “International WELL Building Institute”, Rick Fedrizzi:
“The WELL Conference was always meant to bring together the energy, enthusiasm and expertise that’s coalescing around the idea that our buildings and communities, and everything in them, are fundamental to our health and happiness. What it means to design for health and wellness has shifted fundamentally over the course of the past few months, placing our buildings and communities at the frontline of this public health challenge. We remain committed to advancing this movement together, but at this time we must do our part to slow the spread of COVID-19 and protect the health and safety of our community.”
While Emerald’s “Senior Vice President of the Design Group”, Stacy Shoemaker Rauen added:
“With The WELL Conference, we were hoping we could not only reimagine the meeting experience itself, but give the architecture and design community as well as other market sectors the education and inspiration needed to create a holistic culture of health. In fact, with the pandemic the world is now facing, wellness has never been more important, and we were excited to bring together like-minded attendees to prepare for the new realities ahead. However, the health and safety of our community and our team is of the utmost importance to us and it became clear we needed to postpone the live event until 2021.”
The chief executive officer of ASID, “Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID”, stated:
“The goal of The WELL Conference will remain to convene and educate the minds that will help build a healthier future. Despite the necessary but difficult decision to cancel The WELL Conference in 2020, I am proud of all three organizations – ASID, IWBI, and Emerald – for the commitment to guiding a movement centered in wellness. We will continue to work jointly to create an experience in 2021 that will inspire those who strive to make the spaces where we live, work, and play healthier.”
