The South Wireless Summit planned for March 16-18, in Nashville, has been cancelled with plans to reschedule the conference for this summer. The Summit is a joint effort by state wireless associations in AL, AR/OK, NC/SC, FL, GA, KY, LA, MS, TN and TX. The group issued the following statement yesterday:
“With the recent activity of COVID-19 and the closure of numerous college campuses (including Vanderbilt in Nashville), as well as various company travel bans, the South Wireless Summit is being postponed. We are working with all our venues to reschedule for this summer – dates will be provided to everyone as soon as they are confirmed. All sponsorships, fees and paid entries into the Summit will be transferred to the rescheduled event.
This decision was not an easy one to make, but we understand if we were to proceed with the event, many of our sponsors, speakers, and attendees wouldn’t be able to attend, thus causing the event to be non-productive or serve our wireless community.
New dates will be sent out to everyone as soon as they are confirmed,” the statement read.
