Industry conference organizers continue to adjust
to the ongoing coronavirus crisis. At least two big June events, and an April-May event, are some of the recent ones making changes.
BNY Mellon's Pershing
team has canceled their 2020 Insite
conference, a company spokesperson tells MFWire
. The B-D- and RIA-support giant's annual conference was originally scheduled
for June 10-12 in Chicago.
"After much thought and consideration, we have made the difficult decision to cancel INSITE 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic," that Pershing spokesperson tells MFWire
Looking ahead, the Pershing team has scheduled their 2021 Insite conference for June 8-10, 2021, in Orlando.
Yesterday the Morningstar
the industry that their giant Morningstar Investment Conference
is being postponed. The advisor-centric event (which traditionally features a host of fundsters, both PMs and distribution and marketing executives, trying to reach those FAs) was originally scheduled for June 3-5 in Chicago.
"We will share a new date for the event in the coming weeks," the Morningstar team posted.
(The Insite and Morningstar conferences were both scheduled to be held at Chi-Town's McCormick Place convention center. Last week, news leaked
that the convention is being transformed
into a temporary hospital in light of the pandemic.)
Meanwhile, Wilmington plc's FRA
team is transforming
their 29th Sub-Advised Funds Forum
