Podcast Movement 2020 will take place in Dallas, Texas. Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dates of the event have been changed. It will now be from Monday, October 19, through Thursday, October 22. This decision was made in order to prioritize the health and safety of attendees, sponsors, speakers, and staff.
Here are some key points from the newsletter:
- We hope that this is a welcome change for many of you, but are fully aware that it will be an unfortunate one for others, so we wanted to share with you why this decision is necessary after several weeks of serious discussion and consideration.
- We feel that August is too soon to hold the event safely. Even if cities and states were open for events by then, which is far from certain, we would not feel comfortable asking our speakers, sponsors, or attendees to travel to us until later.
- The October dates give us an additional two months to monitor the containment and confirm that we can safely host the event, if, as the new date approaches, we feel as if we cannot do this, we will cancel the conference before putting anyone in harm’s way.
