We are carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation. Currently, we are moving forward with all plans to hold NRB 2021 as a live, in-person event on site at the Gaylord Texan in Grapevine, Texas, just outside of Dallas, March 15-18, 2021.
With time, better understanding of the virus, more effective treatments, and availability of immunizations – along with necessary safety steps taken by airlines, the Gaylord Texan, and NRB – we feel confident that meeting in person will be more than possible and safe. While we are optimistic that the COVID-19 situation will be much better by March 2021, we will have several safety precautions in place should the virus continue to be a threat. We are looking at room sizes and layouts that allow for social distancing, providing hand sanitation stations, and more. The situation presently is very fluid as federal, state, and local guidelines and restrictions are changing daily, but we are monitoring the developments very closely and will adjust accordingly. It is our goal to provide the safest possible situation for all attendees.
