Overview

It is with great disappointment that SIFMA must inform you that the SIFMA FMS Regional Conference has been canceled.

Unfortunately, circumstances beyond our control have made it impossible to proceed with several events this year. The cancellations were precipitated primarily by public health and travel advisories, restrictions on non-essential travel and large gatherings, and other recent events related to the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). We hope this advance notice affords you the opportunity to plan accordingly. For the status of all upcoming events, please click here.

Your registration fee is 100% refundable and will be automatically refunded within 45 business days. You do not need to contact SIFMA for this refund. Please contact hotels booked outside SIFMA’s room block and other travel carriers to cancel arrangements as needed.

SIFMA’s Business Continuity Planning (BCP) team continues to closely monitor COVID-19 and its impact on our industry and the markets. For more information, please visit www.sifma.org/bcp.

We appreciate your understanding and support and look forward to seeing you at a future event. In the meantime, you can visit us at www.sifma.org/events.
