2020 Annual Conference Cancelled Due to COVID-19

After lengthy deliberations, it was the decision of the Board of Directors to cancel our annual conference due to the growing global response to COVID-19. 

We are devastated to share this news with you. Our annual conference is in our DNA, and this is the first time in 44 years that our flagship event will not take place. We are exploring options to provide a virtual experience as soon as possible.

We understand the gravity of the situation for all of the professionals who utilize our conference to accelerate their careers; for the city of Phoenix, and all of the exhibitors, vendors, service industry staff, and other partners that rely so heavily on the increased business that OBAP attracts, but we are comforted in knowing our OBAP family and valued partners will not face unnecessary risk.

We will continue to work hard to provide you opportunities to connect with your peers and learn from industry partners as we navigate this new normal. Though our event will no longer take place in the way that we intended, we continue to strive toward our purpose – helping our members achieve their goals.

We are delighted to share our plans for our next year and hope to celebrate with you in beautiful New Orleans on August 11-13, 2021.
