Retail Summit & Expo

Retail Summit & Expo

Based on the advice of public officials who are strongly urging social distancing, we have made the decision to postpone the conference. I will keep you posted on the exact date of the rescheduled event. We will continue to monitor the situation with the hope of scheduling for May/June. Social responsibility requires all of us to dramatically reduce social interaction to the bare minimum to help slow the spread of COVID-19. It is our collective responsibility to work together to contain this virus. I am discussing optional dates with the Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver Conference Center. I would like to commend the Hyatt for their high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. They will also continue to adjust food and beverage service in accordance with current food safety recommendations. If you have any questions, please contact me at 303-623-1148 ext. 101 or Sincerely, Jon Stern Publisher and Founder Colorado Real Estate Journal 303-623-1148 ext. 101
