For the past few weeks, API has been paying close attention to the developing news about the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). After much thoughtful deliberation and evaluation of the evolving situation, we regret to advise that we decided to cancel all of our widely attended meetings and conferences until further notice.

We apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation may cause to you and your business needs. In making this difficult decision, paramount is the health, safety, and welfare of our attendees. We acknowledge that the increase in company-mandated travel restrictions, as well as growing concerns over exposure have made it impossible to ensure the execution of a successful conference experience this spring.

We appreciate your understanding and look forward to seeing you at a future meeting.
