Cancellation of WestEdge 2020 Amid Growing COVID-19 Concerns
WestEdge - Friday, July 17th, 12:11 pm
As the COVID-19 virus changes our daily lives and affects communities around the world, we extend our well wishes and support to you all, as we all adapt to this new reality of increased health & safety precautions, ‘social distancing’, and ongoing concerns about the pandemic’s economic impact.
Amidst this pandemic, we have determined that the challenges of hosting the 2020 edition of WestEdge this October are proving insurmountable and therefore we will be canceling our annual event. After much consideration and consultation with City & State and Health authorities here in Southern California, it’s clear that the circumstances are too unpredictable to proceed with our physical event this year. The health and safety considerations of our valued partners, as well as our own team, are paramount.
While it’s heartbreaking to know that we will not see you in person this fall in Santa Monica, we are planning for our 8th edition of WestEdge next year, October 21-24, 2021. In the meantime, over the course of the next few months we’ll be continuing to expand our digital initiatives to ensure we’re providing our network with critical exposure to stay engaged and keep the design community connected and inspired. Stay tuned for more updates on those opportunities
