March 17, 2020 Update - 

FBC is closely monitoring the new developments of the Coronavirus along with our government sponsors. Based on the current circumstances, many of our upcoming events have been postponed to future 2020 dates. We want to make sure all of our events being rescheduled are transitioned to new dates as smoothly as possible and we are working diligently with venues to secure dates as quickly as possible. Event websites will be updated as information becomes available and we will keep all participants notified as changes occur. View our updated schedule here.

Additionally, we know how important it is to stay connected in the marketplace so we are exploring other methods of delivering content and/or providing ways for registered participants to engage with each other leading up to the rescheduled events.

The following events were postponed today:

  • 30th Anniversary Government Procurement Conference (originally scheduled for April 8th) will now take place in the July/August timeframe.
  • NLIT Summit 2020 (originally scheduled for May 3 – 6, 2020) will now take place in August.
We thank all of our participants for their patience while we work through this rapidly evolving situation. Stay safe!

March 13, 2020 Update - 

FBC continues to monitor the COVAD-19 developments on a daily basis along with our event hosts, partners and health officials. This is a fluid situation and we are making changes as necessary to ensure the well-being of our participants, staff and community. We will notify all participants immediately if an event needs to be rescheduled. Information will also be posted on any individual event sites.

We hope the spread of the virus will soon be contained. In the meantime, we remain focused on making our events better than ever.

March 3, 2020 Update - 

FBC is monitoring the developments of the Coronavirus along with our government sponsors. Our events are currently moving forward as planned. Government agencies, military bases, and other venues we are working with are closely following CDC guidelines. We will all take precautionary measures to ensure the safety of our event participants.

We strongly encourage attendees and exhibitors to follow the guidance of the CDC for everyday preventative actions to help prevent the spread of respiratory viruses.

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.  FBC is currently working on providing hand sanitizing stations or providing participants with sanitizing packets.
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when sick.
  • Cover a cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

We will continue to monitor the situation as it evolves. Any changes to an event will be emailed to registered participants and posted on the event website.
