The VO Atlanta Voiceover Conference for 2020 is Moving Ahead
With major events canceling around the world over the past few days, we know that many in our community are asking questions about this year’s VO Atlanta Voiceover Conference. With VO Atlanta 2020 due to take place March 26-29, 2020, the VO ATLANTA team continues to plan confidently for the show. We currently have NO plans to postpone or cancel. We’re very grateful for the ongoing support of our exhibitors and attendees who continue to register and plan for the conference and we’ve not experienced any substantial impacts so far.
The VO ATLANTA team remains in close contact with our partners, as well as monitoring relevant health authorities such as the CDC. As this unprecedented situation is changing every day, we remain watchful but also focused on delivering what is an extremely important event for the global voiceover community. We are mindful of our responsibility of care, we’re also carefully considering the guidance provided by our CDC here in the US on what the appropriate sanitary, health and other measures should be. All appropriate measures will be in place at VO ATLANTA. COVID-19 is presenting the events and travel industries with an unprecedented global challenge. The VO ATLANTA team are passionate believers in, and advocates for, the substantial social and economic power of meetings and events. Like you, we know that the negative long-term impact of speculation, hype, and over-reaction will be damaging not just to our industry, but also to the businesses we depend on for our livelihood.
We feel strongly that it is our collective responsibility to focus on the facts and to act with common sense and sound judgment, taking the advice of the relevant authorities and scientists. In the words of Gloria Guevara, President, and CEO, World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), “containing the spread of unnecessary panic is as important as stopping the virus itself.”
We look forward to welcoming you to VO ATLANTA and wish you, your communities, and your families the very best of health and wellbeing.
