Home COVID-19 Update COVID-19 Conference Information

We are excited many of our fellow members are returning to experience Focus Conference 2022 live.  Your health is important to us!

UPDATED Jan. 12, 2022: Out of an abundance of caution, Focus Conference 2022 is moving from Feb. 5-7 to May 1-3, 2022. This change is to ensure the safety of all those involved and is expected to only occur this year.

We did not take this decision lightly. The current infection rate of COVID-19 due to the omicron variant is troubling. While we would love to see you all in February, we cannot be confident that this current surge will be over in a few short weeks. After consulting with the VGM Pandemic Task Force, we believe it is in everyone’s best interest to postpone the event for a few months.

We know you have many questions as this affects your plans for your business as well as your travel plans. Please see our FAQs for the latest information regarding the change of dates for Focus Conference 2022.
