, managing principal of Tiburon Strategic Advisors
, confirms that the Tiburon CEO Summit XXVIII
has been cancelled. The event had been scheduled for April 6-8 in New York City.
"I am voting for safety first," Roame wrote yesterday to attendees. "Furthermore, the combination of the world coronavirus health scare, plus the plunging stock market, plus dozens of companies' travel bans, plus now yesterday's USA-Europe travel restriction (which overlaps with our dates), means we are now receiving many attendee and speaker cancelations."
Roame added that he and his team will try to move the speakers from the cancelled event to their planned upcoming summits in October 2020 and April 2021.
