May 19, 2020

As we continue to navigate the challenges presented to us by COVID-19, it is natural that you may have questions about how the pandemic will impact our plans for DevLearn this fall. Despite the global effort and progress made to control the spread of this virus, no one really knows what the future will hold. But there is something you can count on within this sea of uncertainty.

DevLearn will happen this fall.

We are monitoring updates and guidance from a national and local level, and are increasingly optimistic about our ability to gather in Las Vegas as scheduled. The health and safety of our community will be paramount, and we expect to make some enhancements to the event experience to accommodate current recommendations. We are encouraged to see that the Mirage Hotel shares our proactive approach to addressing the safety and comfort of our attendees, and I encourage you to check out the latest updates on their plans for on-site accommodations.

We are committed to being fully transparent about our plans and expectations. This COVID-19 page of our website will be updated regularly with information about how we are planning DevLearn as the pandemic and our eventual return to normalcy continues to evolve.

While we are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Las Vegas, we also must acknowledge the possibility that the changing nature of the pandemic may make gathering in person impossible.

Our team is actively planning an expanded, multi-week online experience that we can pivot towards should we not be able to gather in person. This experience will not only deliver upon the core expectations people have from DevLearn, but will also leverage the digital environment in new and exciting ways.

We know that you would be as disappointed as we are if we are unable to gather in person this fall, and it is our goal to overwhelm you with value should that happen. If we need to pivot to the online experience, not only will you receive access for yourself, you’ll also receive two additional passes to the online experience to share with other members of your team. You’ll also receive 50% off any Learning Guild Conference in 2021 as well as additional exciting benefits.

We appreciate the trust you place in us as a provider of learning, growth, and community, and we want you to feel confident that your registration will provide you and your organization with the professional development value you expect and more.

DevLearn will happen this fall, and we’re looking forward to learning with you.

Thank you for being a part of our community.

Executive Director, The Learning Guild
