Dear friends and members of the T3 community,
Unfortunately, the Delta Variant and continuing concerns about coronavirus transmission have forced us to make a difficult decision.
We are currently in the process of pushing the T3 conference from fall 2021 into spring 2022. In the essence of time and respect for the effort and cost associated with planning your participation, we wanted to send this message as soon as a decision to postpone was made.
We have spoken with numerous T3 stakeholders, speakers, sponsors, press and attendees, and have determined that this is the best plan for all concerned.
We are sorry if this causes you any undue stress and hope that you will be able to cancel your travel plans now – and save those airline credits for the new date – which will be announced in the next week or so, once the convention center and hotel in Denton, Texas, confirms that we can lock in our desired dates in May or June of 2022. Know that we are trying to avoid an overlap with other major conferences, etc.
Please bear with us as we work with the meeting planning teams to move T3 into 2022. Hopefully, the coronavirus concerns will be much reduced by then.
If you are registered as a speaker or as an attendee, in any category of participation, no action is needed on your part. We will automatically roll your registration(s) forward for the new dates in 2022. Questions or other requests to the contrary should be addressed to Phil Galanty at AIM Meetings: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are a sponsor, no action is needed on your part. Phil Galanty and AIM Meetings will roll forward your sponsorship to the new dates in 2022. Questions or other requests to the contrary should be addressed to Phil Galanty at AIM Meetings: email@example.com
Please hold tight on canceling your hotel reservation(s) at the Embassy Suites. We are trying to work out a process with them to eliminate the need for you to do this directly – but we will send additional information out on that within the next 24-48 hours.
Please, of course, handle your own airline cancelations and credits. Many of the carriers have relaxed their change/cancel/future-use policies due to current realities, so we trust this will not affect your wallet.
We are truly sorry for this disruption and change in plans. I know that we were all looking forward to getting back together, in person, this fall, but the consensus is that this is the best course of action right now.
Please continue to watch T3 social media and subscribe to the T3 Newsletter at www.T3TechnologyHub.com so that you receive continued information about FinTech news and technology advances on an ongoing basis. We’ll also be emailing the new 2022 dates as soon as we have them from the Denton Convention Center and venue hotel. Staying on this email list will ensure you receive timely information.
Again, we will send out another communication with the new 2022 dates for T3 in Denton, Texas, as well as hotel cancelation instructions, as soon as those become available – hopefully in the next 1-2 days on the hotel instructions and 1-2 weeks before we have the new 2022 dates.
