2020 Conexxus Annual Conference Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update: The 2020 Annual Conference Cancelled

After careful consideration, Conexxus has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Annual Conference scheduled to take place April 26-30 at Loews Ventana Canyon in Tucson, AZ. 

Our decision to cancel our flagship annual event was not taken lightly. Conexxus has been closely monitoring updates and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), as well as federal, state and local government agencies and officials. In the last week, we’ve also learned of the increasing number of travel advisories and restrictions being placed on our members; retailers and solution providers that would typically attend the conference.

The health, safety and well-being of our members, conference participants and staff is of paramount importance. We believe it is in the best interest of everyone to cancel the conference and do our part to help our attendees remain healthy.

This is a first for Conexxus. We have never not held an Annual Conference or Meeting, live and in person, in the seventeen years since our inception. The Annual Conference is eagerly awaited by industry participants as the ONLY technology conference dedicated to the convenience and fuel retailing sector, focusing on new technologies and technology standards to improve business processes, reduce costs, and increase profitability.   It has always been an excellent opportunity to meet with industry experts, hear about industry trends and cutting-edge new technologies and how they affect our businesses.

We have prepared an initial FAQ document to help with answering hotel, refund and other questions. This document will continue to be updated. If you have questions or concerns, please contact Ann Zecca, azecca@conexxus.org.

Be well, and be kind to each other in this difficult time we all share…
