Due to concerns around the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Department of Defense and SAE International have made the responsible decision to cancel the 2020 DoD Maintenance Symposium, originally scheduled for December 7-10, 2020, in Kansas City, Missouri.
Before making this decision, we extensively monitored and evaluated health directives from governmental and international health authorities, government- and corporate-imposed travel restrictions, and social distancing directives implemented at the Kansas City Convention Center. We remain firmly committed to prioritizing the health and safety of our participants, attendees, partners and staff, and apologize for any inconvenience this cancellation has caused.
The length and global impact of the COVID-19 pandemic remain unknown, but planning has begun for conducting an even more robust 2021 DoD Maintenance Symposium, scheduled for December 6-9, 2021, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. If you already registered to exhibit or sponsor the at the 2020 Defense Maintenance and Logistics Exhibition, you have the option to either roll over your agreement and deposits to next year’s event or receive a full refund. We appreciate your valuable support and hope you will join us in 2021 as we look ahead to deliver the defense maintenance and sustainment enterprises with an extraordinary learning, collaboration, and technology exploration opportunity.
