RE: LVGA Annual Convention
Due to the rapid rise in the Covid virus and Delta variant outbreaks,
we have made the decision to cancel the "in-person" Convention
scheduled for September 21-22, 2021 at L'Auberge Casino in Baton
However, we will be hosting a Virtual Convention, in which you will
be able to participate, sponsor, exhibit, hear speakers and watch
Since this is a very new development, we are working on the details
for the Virtual Convention, and will be in touch soon to share the
dynamics of your participation in this new generation of sharing,
advertising, and learning.
As we all strive to keep up with these rapidly changing times, we
are excited and ready to bring as much information to you as
possible in a safe and user friendly environment, where everyone
can continue to benefit and enjoy themselves, as well.
Please be patient as we continue to plan and develop our Virtual
Convention. You will receive information and instructions on how
to proceed. Please reserve these same dates on your calendar;
the revised Agenda for the Virtual Convention will be out soon.
In the meantime, you may want to cancel any hotel reservations
you have made. Additionally, if you have purchased meal tickets,
you will receive a refund. We ask that Sponsors and Exhibitors
wait for the Virtual Convention details, before making a decision
Also, keep in mind, we plan to continue hosting our regular
"in-person" Annual Convention in 2022. If you do not choose
to participate in this Virtual Convention, your fee can be rolled
over to 2022.
Thank you for your interest, participation, patience, and understanding.
