Effective March 22, 2020, Southwest has announced flights from Florida to Cuba will be canceled. They will resume on May 4, 2020. Due to this and the ever-changing circumstances surrounding the Corona Virus epidemic I have decided to reschedule the Conference, if possible, at a later time. I did not make this decision lightly. A lot of time, energy, effort and expense has been invested in setting up this Conference both by us and our counterparts in Havana. But given the unprecedented public and governmental response to the virus (it has now been declared a National Emergency), it seems the prudent thing to do.
Where do we go from here? Well, our efforts are going to be directed to resurrecting the Conference. What and how we do it will depend on a lot of other contingencies. For now, however, we will remain optimistic. Nothing can be determined until the dust settles. We will continue to provide regular updates as we receive them.
