Brett Lindsay, Local Organizing Committee Chair, provided the following statement:
The IEEE, PCA and the Local Organizing Committee have all been closely monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. The safety and well-being of the conference participants was always our top priority during this time.
We are sorry to announce that the 2020 IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Industry Technical Conference, scheduled for April 19 - 23 in Las Vegas, has been cancelled. Registered attendees, sponsors and exhibitors will receive full refunds. We will be processing these refunds over the next few weeks. If you reserved your hotel room at the MGM via the link on the website your reservation will automatically be cancelled by the MGM and your deposit refunded.
All exhibit furnishings, electricity requirements and internet connections ordered through Fern will be handled by their customer service group. They should be reaching out to you soon.
Feel free to email with any questions you may have.
Please stay safe and healthy during this very difficult time for all of us.
