The WHEA Board, after several weeks of careful consideration and with great thought, is announcing the cancellation of the WHEA Annual Conference and Technical Exhibition that was to be held in Appleton, September 29 – October 2, 2020, due to the continuing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.
As a healthcare facility organization, the concern for the health of our attendees, technical exhibitors, conference workers and hotel personnel plus the serious consequences of holding a large gathering to our healthcare facilities around the State weighed heavily in our decision.
Please know that the WHEA Board and the Conference Committee did not come to this decision lightly. The tremendous amount of networking done at our conference is what makes it one of the premier events of the year and what also made this cancellation the right thing to do. We eagerly look forward to a full and exciting annual conference in 2021.
