SHRM20 Conference & Exposition COVID-19 Statement

UPDATE April, 3: 
the Annual Conference & Exposition is approximately three months away, and we know many of you want to know SHRM’s plans.

We have been actively engaged with federal, state and local public health officials and the San Diego Mayor’s Office for guidance regarding the event. The safety of our conference attendees is our top priority and we take our responsibility to you very seriously. As such, we will only proceed with SHRM20 if we can do so safely — relying on expert guidance and directives from public health experts. 

We are your partner through these unprecedented times and will continue to help you navigate during this period of uncertainty. We will continue to monitor this situation daily and will make future adjustments as the situation warrants, notifying attendees promptly of any change. We will update you Monday, May 4, with details regarding SHRM20.

If at this time you would like to transfer your registration to a future SHRM conference, please contact us.

Thank you for your understanding and we hope to see you in San Diego this summer.
