The governor of Illinois recently issued a disaster proclamation due to the COVID-19 situation. To protect attendees’ health and safety, the American Concrete Institute has made the decision to cancel the upcoming ACI Concrete Convention in Rosemont/Chicago, Illinois. Many attendees have notified ACI of travel restrictions placed upon them, and it became impossible to host a face-to-face convention. ACI is sure that registrants have additional questions; it does, too, and is actively working to develop answers.
As of today, March 11, 2020, ACI suggests registrants cancel any travel plans and hotel reservations related to the convention. They are also investigating alternative methods to carry on the business normally conducted in-person at convention. To have your registration fee refunded, please email your request to email@example.com and include your ACI member number and/or convention registration order number, if available, prior to March 27, 2020. If you’d rather have your registration fee used as a donation to offset the Institute’s financial loss from cancellation of the convention, no action is needed.
