ENGAGE 2020, originally set for June 7-11 in Las Vegas, will be postponed until later this year due to concerns about the coronavirus pandemic.
ENGAGE 2020, sponsored by AICPA and the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), is one of the largest accounting and finance conferences in North America.
Details on the timing and format of the rescheduled event are still being set, as the situation surrounding the outbreak is constantly changing.
“We want our attendees, staff and speakers to be safe, so this is the most prudent step to take at this point,” says Clar Rosso, the AICPA executive vice president for engagement and learning innovation. “We also know that families, small businesses and companies of all sizes will be depending on CPAs and management accountants to help guide them through unexpected financial and economic challenges in the weeks ahead, so we are bearing that in mind, too.”
ENGAGE 2020 attendees who are already registered and others interested in details about the rescheduled event can sign up for updates on aicpaengage.com. More information about the postponement, refunds and other policies can be found in a FAQ on the site.
Several other upcoming AICPA conferences will also be postponed, including the AICPA CFO Conference, which will now be held Sept. 16-18 at the Loews Coronado Bay Resort in San Diego, Calif., the AICPA Employee Benefit Plans Conference and the AICPA Not-for-Profit Industry Conference, with the latter two reschedulings still to be determined.
