Due to concerns about the spread of COVID-19, The Household and Commercial Products Association (HCPA) has made the decision to change IMPACT2020, scheduled to take place April 21-24 in Washington, D.C., to a virtual webinar series.
According to the HCPA:
It has become abundantly clear that cancelling the in-person aspects of this meeting is the right course of action to protect the health and safety of our members, vendors, staff, and local community. The decision reflects guidance from health officials, the HCPA Board of Directors, our legal counsel and with the total support of The Mayflower Hotel.
While we were very much looking forward to this event, we were in an extremely difficult position and this was the right choice to make for myriad reasons.
HCPA is already planning to offer components of the meeting virtually and will update you next week as plans are solidified.
Subject to change:
The working committee meetings of the HCPA Product Divisions and other scientific and technical groups will tentatively take place during the currently scheduled time slots, but via webinar, April 21-24. Special sessions, panel discussions, government relations content and Product Division program guest speakers will be repackaged as a series of webinars over the course of April, May and June.
The schedule and registration process for all of this is rapidly evolving, please stay tuned for an email next week with additional details.
