CHICAGO - WEFTEC has announced that registration is open for its 2020 conference, set for Oct. 3-7 in New Orleans, Louisiana at the Morial Convention Center.

However, there are options to register for virtual portions of the event, as the coronavirus has brought about many uncertainties. The options to register are at the WEFTEC site here.

WEFTEC organizers are optimistic that global recovery will advance and allow them to host WEFTEC 2020 in person. Registration opened May 5 with the Early Bird rate in place until July 24. As a bonus, in-person registration also will grant access to WEFTEC Connect, the virtual WEFTEC experience.

This new virtual event offering will provide access to selected live-stream and pre-recorded content, as well as a virtual exhibitor showcase and virtual networking opportunities. WEFTEC Connect also will offer year-round access to WEFTEC content and contacts.

Registration for WEFTEC Connect will open on June 2. WEFTEC will share more information as we finalize the details.
