Dear ATA Member:

We were looking forward to hosting you in-person at ATA’s Annual Management Conference & Exhibition this October in Denver, Colorado.  We have been working closely with the Gaylord Rockies Resort to ensure our attendees would be safe, in addition to having an exceptional experience and meeting.  Unfortunately the state of Colorado and the City of Aurora have recently put additional restrictions in place that will not allow us to continue with an in-person event, and we don’t anticipate those restrictions changing much this year.  The decision was made unanimously this morning by the ATA Officers to move MCE to a virtual event.

Thank you to those who have already registered to attend, have committed to a booth in our exhibit hall or a sponsorship of a program.  We will be in touch with you in the next week to discuss a number of options for your commitments and ensure a return on your investment.  While virtual events don’t provide an opportunity for one-on-one conversations, we are excited about some of the opportunities to connect our membership together.

In the meantime, we are putting final touches on our virtual program, which will allow us to continue with our policy discussions, education sessions and overall great programs.  We plan to continue with many of the programs already in place and will address issues that can help our industry recover from the pandemic and move forward.

Thank you for your patience as we finalize the program and opportunities.

We will miss seeing you in-person but look forward to a great MCE.
