"AWCI’s 2021 Convention & INTEX Expo, originally scheduled for this April in New Orleans, Louisiana, has moved to October 17-20, 2021.

After monitoring COVID-19 conditions with the city of New Orleans and the state of Louisiana, AWCI leadership has made the decision to move AWCI's Convention & INTEX Expo to October in order to help ensure the health and safety of all who attend. It will remain in New Orleans at the same hotel and convention center where the April event was to be held.

AWCI is committed to holding this event in 2021 as long as we can produce a safe and outstanding experience for all involved. To that end, we will of course be following all state, local and CDC protocols throughout AWCI's Convention & INTEX Expo, which we expect will include masks, temperature checks, social distancing and other necessary safeguards.

Registration and hotel reservations will open on July 19.

Due to the change of dates for AWCI’s Convention & INTEX Expo, AWCI’s Industry Leaders Conference, September 28 to October 1, 2021 in Hollywood, California, will not be held. We are working to either rebook at that property for a future year or keep the 2021 dates for another “to be determined” AWCI event.

For more information and updates, please visit the convention website. You may also contact Karen Bilak, Director of Convention & Conferences, for convention information or Samantha Riemer, Manager of Trade Show & Meetings, for INTEX Expo information.

Thank you for you continued patience and support. We look forward to seeing you in New Orleans this fall!

"Good afternoon,

We recently conducted a membership survey to ascertain whether or not members were willing to travel to the CISCA convention in April 2021 and the responses indicated that our members are not comfortable traveling yet. Therefore, CISCA's 2021 Convention originally scheduled for April 2021 in New Orleans is being postponed to October 17-20, 2021 in New Orleans. Registration will open in mid-July.

We will continue to monitor the situation with COVID and re-evaluate if necessary.

We will provide more details on the convention and CISCA's Fall Conference later this month. We will also be in contact with our very generous sponsors within the next four to six weeks.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Scott Turczynski

2020-2021 CISCA President"
