The American Association of Commercial Finance Brokers (AACFB) will hold its 2020 annual conference virtually. The conference was originally scheduled for May 6-8 in Las Vegas but was postponed to September in March due to the COVID-19 crisis. Since that time, the association has been monitoring COVID-19 developments, and due to rising cases of the virus across the U.S. and the extension of the state of emergency in Washington, D.C., decided to make the conference a virtual event.
The dates of the online conference will be September 21-25, which will allow attendees to participate in all of the education programming over the course of the week, rather than having to choose between concurrent sessions. Educational sessions and content also will be accessible online following the event for registered attendees. The virtual tradeshow will provide exhibitors new opportunities to showcase their financial products and services and connect with brokers.
“While we are disappointed that we will not be able to host everyone in person this year, I am excited that we will still be able to deliver exceptional content and networking to attendees using the latest technology,” Cindy Downs, president of the AACFB, said. “The conference experience will also be available to a broader section of our membership who may not have been able to attend an in-person conference in the past. We are hard at work making sure this online conference will bring our members together, lift them up and give them the networking and education needed to keep their businesses moving forward.”
More details will be announced for the event soon, including registration pricing and a revised agenda.
