The immediate health and safety of our members and their families, management associates and everyone in and around the YPO community is always our highest priority. We were expecting 2,600-member chief executives representing 80 countries to attend. With global concerns around coronavirus (COVID-19) rising, we thought it best at this time to cancel our event out of an abundance of caution. Our members will be receiving a full refund of their event fees as a result of this decision.
We want to thank our members, their families, management associates as well as 2020 YPO EDGE speakers, sponsors and vendors for their support of this event and our organization. We want to also extend our gratitude to the Manchester Grand Hyatt and the city of San Diego for their hospitality and understanding.
Scott Mordell, CEO, YPO
