TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY ROADSHOW 2020 UPDATES

Postponed – Niagara Falls Trenchless Roadshow 2020

May 19 to 21, 2020 Scotiabank Convention Centre

Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada

 

On Monday March 16, 2020 the Scotiabank Convention Centre announced on their website the following statement.    

“Following the Province of Ontario’s recommendation to immediately suspend all gatherings over 250 people, events scheduled for the immediate future will not proceed until further notice.”

Since our event is in the immediate future and we will have over 250 attendees, CATT and Benjamin Media have proactively decided, that we have no choice, but to postpone the 2020 Trenchless Roadshow to a future date to be determined.  Subsequent to the announcement by Scotiabank Convention Centre above, the Province of Ontario has recommended to suspend gatherings over 50 people. 

This decision has been made for the safety of the public, event exhibitors, attendees, and personnel and to ensure that we host the best possible industry event.  

CATT and Benjamin Media would like to thank all Trenchless Roadshow Sponsors, Exhibitors, and Program Speakers for what was shaping up to be our biggest and best event to date.  

We ask for your patience as we work through our next steps.  

Over the coming weeks, next step details will be communicated via emails to all sponsors, exhibitors, and registered attendees and through website updates. 

We thank you for your understanding during these unprecedented and uncharted times. 

Best Regards

Mark Knight –Executive Director, CATT

Rob Krzys – President, Benjamin Media

Mariana Balaban – Conference Chair, City of Toronto

Continued Updates

March 23rd, 2020  Accommodations Update 

This past week CATT and Benjamin Media staff have been busy working on how to proceed with the Trenchless Roadshow and our next steps. As soon as we can, we will make an announcement of our new and exciting plans.  We thank you for your patience and understanding in these very fluid and continually changing times. 

On Monday we informed the Marriott on the Falls and the Scotiabank Convention Centre, in writing, that we are postponing the TRS 2020 Niagara Falls Roadshow due to COVID-19.  As you can imagine both the Marriott and the Convention Centre have been hit with many March, April and May event cancellations that need to be carefully addressed.

On Friday we were informed, by a conference attendee that when they tried to cancel their Marriott hotel booking that they were told by the Marriott that would be charged a cancellation fee and that the event organizers needed to cancel the event room block with the hotel.   

We ask for your patience as the Marriott is working on all these cancellations. We also want to let you know that you should not be charged a room cancellation fee. 

We are in close contact with the Marriott and will inform you once they have released our room block. 

Once again thank you for your understanding and patience in these trying times.
