Prosper Show 2020 Cancels Live Event, Announces Immersive Virtual Offering
Maintaining the health and safety of every member of this incredible community, as well as that of the Prosper team, is paramount to us. In consultation with the industry, we postponed Prosper Show at the Westgate Resort in Las Vegas from March 23-25 to August 31-September 2, 2020. Amid growing concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, and after having extensive discussions with many of you on the viability of our postponement dates, we have been forced to formally cancel Prosper Show 2020.
The cancellation of the live event is due to the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the latest government data, measures, and guidelines on the phased reopening plans in the U.S.; current restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by states and other government and public health authorities; the inability of Prosper’s international community to travel to the event due to travel restrictions and bans; and the various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees affecting attendees and participating companies.
“Naturally, we are disappointed to not have the opportunity to bring our community together face to face. However, we remain committed to finding ways to facilitate learning and networking for our community of Amazon sellers, consultants and solution providers in new and exciting ways,” said Brian Anderson, Conference Producer, Prosper. “Our attention has now turned to a fully immersive virtual event offering, which we will be announcing in the very near future. Since March, we have been thrilled by how well and how many sellers have benefited from the practical and relevant content of our webinar series. In the spirit of innovation and devotion to our community, we will continue to develop ways to provide meaningful digital connections with the inaugural Prosper Virtual Show,” added Anderson.
Prosper Virtual will launch as a live, two-day experience this fall, with an engaging offering of live-streamed education, live chat opportunity and a full suite of provider solutions ready to help you take your business to the next level. We are confirming dates for the fall event and will be sharing additional information very soon.
We are scheduled for a full-scale, live and in-person Prosper Show on March 1-3, 2021, at the Westgate Resort in Las Vegas. We are working with the venue and planning ahead to ensure we host a productive, safe and healthy event for our customers.
As always, we appreciate your ongoing loyalty to Prosper Show and thank you in advance for your understanding.
