UPDATE ON COVID-19/CORONAVIRUS SCHOOL BUS FLEET ConneX - April 22-24, 2020

Updated: 10:30 am PST - March 16, 2020

Postponement: School Bus Fleet ConneX

As the organizer of School Bus Fleet ConneX, we have been in close communication with our venue partners and monitoring the COVID-19 crisis on an hourly basis. We continue to prioritize the safety and health of our attendees, sponsors and staff above all else.  We have come to the conclusion that it is best to postpone our event. School Bus Fleet ConneX has quickly become the trusted relationship-building event for school transportation leaders. None of this would be possible without our partners on this event so we wanted to weigh all of our alternatives on behalf of every constituency that invests in this event alongside Bobit Business Media.

After a great deal of discussion, we have jointly decided to postpone the 2020 School Bus Fleet ConneX. The safety and health of our attendees and partners is of paramount importance at this time. With that in mind, please stay tuned for additional information from Bobit Business Media concerning our updated plans.

We want to take a minute to offer our sincere thanks and appreciation to all of our operator attendees and sponsor hosts of this event. We look forward to putting together a great event with all of you in the near future. If you have questions regarding your participation, please contact myself (Angelia McCormick) at (310) 533-2591 or [email protected].

We appreciate your patience while we navigate these uncharted waters.

Sincerely,

We are adhering to the suggestions of the U.S. and state public health guidelines as they are developing with regards to the COVID-19 virus. As the COVID-19 situation is evolving, we strongly advise that you review, from the most trusted source, the U.S Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) travel health notices related to this outbreak. These notices are updated as more information becomes available and, if there are any changes with entry to the U.S., they can be found here.
