Dear Valued Partners,
After careful consideration and with much sadness, Eaton is postponing our 2020 Partner Summit, scheduled to take place in Fort Lauderdale, March 16-18. We do this with deep disappointment as we had planned on having over 250 attendees from eight different countries. In light of developing circumstances regarding the COVID-19 coronavirus, we believe the risks involved with travel to the event cannot be dismissed. Despite the benefits of such a gathering, we have made safeguarding our partners' health the priority.
Over the last few days concern has mounted rapidly about the COVID-19 coronavirus. The World Health Organization raised the threat level on Friday, February 28, the U.S. government cancelled a summit meeting scheduled in Las Vegas and an increasing number of companies are instituting travel bans and restrictions. Additionally, border health checks are becoming more restrictive and there is growing concern about large conferences with people coming from different parts of the world. As our chief concern is the health and safety of all our colleagues, these developments made it necessary to postpone.
Eaton intends to reimburse partners for airfare change fees up to $200. Please complete and submit the form below so we can assemble a record of everyone in need of reimbursement. Once submitted, Eaton will send you a confirmation email, with other details to follow.
While we regret missing the opportunity to gather together this month, we hope everyone remains healthy so we can plan to see you in November.
