CHICOS 2020|10th Anniversary Edition|February 24-26, 2021

October 7, 2020

Letter from Parris E. Jordan, Chairman of CHICOS

Dear colleagues and friends of the Caribbean,

I hope that you, your teammates, and your loved ones are safe and healthy during this time. I am writing to announce that the CHICOS 2020 dates have shifted to February 24-26, 2021, as we are committed to host an in-person event. We are aware that the region needs us to show our support more than ever, and it is also much easier to get deals done in person, while maintaining strict safety guidelines. The 10th Anniversary event will be held at the Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, which features the Caribbean's largest hotel meeting space while abiding by the necessary safety precautions and social-distancing measures in the meeting rooms and outdoor venues.

We are hopeful that a renewed urge to travel to the region, along with open borders, will be underway by February and that we can safely gather with our Caribbean colleagues in the Bahamas. We continue to monitor the global situation and will post updates on the conference website. We are working closely with the host hotel and the government of the Bahamas to ensure a safe and productive event.

We understand that these are truly unprecedented times and we are all trying to adapt to the changing landscape caused by this pandemic. We at CHICOS are dedicated to hosting our event in person, in the Caribbean, as soon as it is safe to do so.

We look forward to convening in a few months to discuss the revitalization of the Caribbean and hope to see you soon.

Sincerely,
Parris E. Jordan
