AGM & BeSpatial Annual Event and Expo postponed to May 2021 due to COVID-19

March 01, 2020 1:32 PM | Anonymous

BeSpatial / urisa ontario, has made the very difficult decision that due to the rapidly escalating COVID-19 outbreaks and contagion, we have no choice but to postpone our upcoming AGM Program event and Expo. It was planned to take place on May 5th and 6th, 2020 at the Americana Conference Centre in Niagara Falls, ON. We will inform you of the new 2021 dates and details once available.

Event registrations, exhibit spots, presentation / contest submissions, awards, etc., have been automatically rolled over to the rescheduled 2021 event.

As we are an organization run by volunteers and having a very limited budget and human resources, we hope that you will be able to attend in 2021. Any requested refund would involve transaction fees from the bank and and dealing with the Canada Revenue Agency to get back the HST. As a small organization offering full refunds would be a huge burden compared to rolling over your registration, which will help us keep costs down and the organization healthy.

If you have booked a room at the Americana, please contact the hotel directly at (905) 356-8444 to cancel your reservation.

Exhibitors, sponsors and speakers: We will be contacting you in the coming weeks to offer our apologies and review our plan for 2021. We understand that you may have further questions; please reach us at info@bespatialontario.ca. We thank you in advance for your patience as we try to respond to each email in a timely manner.

We value the support and understanding of everyone in this unprecedented situation. We are looking forward to getting our strong geospatial and information community back together in the near future. Until then, we send heartfelt thoughts to those who are affected by COVID-19.
