For the first time in MHEDA’s history, we have been forced to make the difficult decision to cancel this year’s convention in light of the impact of COVID-19.
MHEDA has hosted its annual convention since 1955 and this event has always brought together the brightest minds in the industry to network and learn from one another.
We should all be proud of the fact that collectively, our companies represent the very backbone of the supply chain, the industry that provides the means to deliver goods and products to the world and in times like these, when they are needed most.
In light of this current and severe situation, we will continue to persevere. In the face of adversity, MHEDA members will stay strong and your association will communicate and share with you, the resources to help you and those in your organization as we face this situation head-on.
For those of you who have registered for the convention, reserved a booth or sponsored some portion of the program, you can expect to receive a full refund. Please be patient as we work through this process.
We are most grateful to the Hilton Bonnet Creek Resort who has been a tremendous partner during this process. All reservations made within the MHEDA room block will be cancelled by the end of the week and a cancellation confirmation will be emailed to you. Any deposits made will be refunded in full in 3-5 business days. If you wish to rebook, please contact the hotel directly at 407-597-3738.
We encourage you to patronize this property once this tragic situation has been resolved.
We are very appreciative of the support we have received from members who have reached out to us as we have grappled with this decision. We are keeping you and all of your associates in our thoughts as we forge through this unprecedented time in our world.
Please feel free to call upon any member of the MHEDA Board of Directors and Staff as we work together to emerge stronger than ever before. #MHEDASTRONG
