2020 Options Industry Conference Cancellation

It is with deep regret that we are informing you of the cancellation of the 2020 Options Industry Conference on April 22-24 in Puerto Rico. This determination was made due to growing concerns about travel and the spread of the coronavirus or COVID-19. In making this difficult decision, we consulted industry stakeholders and considered the risks presented by this virus.

This decision was not made lightly. Since 1983, the annual conference has been the premier gathering for options professionals to share ideas, discuss vital issues facing the options markets and network with industry leaders. It is a great disappointment to cancel the conference this year, but we must put the well-being of our industry colleagues and their families first.

Your registration fee/paid sponsorship is 100% refundable and will be automatically refunded within the next 30 days. In order to avoid hotel cancellation fees, you must cancel hotel reservations for the conference at least 7 days prior to your scheduled arrival date. Please take any additional actions that may be needed to change or cancel travel arrangements you may have already made for the conference.

Even though we won’t be in Puerto Rico, our commitment to supporting World Central Kitchen remains firm and we will continue to encourage support efforts for the important work that the organization does around the world. Our conference charity donation site remains open for your contributions. Click here to donate.

We appreciate your understanding in this situation and look forward to seeing you at the 2021 conference.
