Announced Mar. 23, 2020 by Armin
The optimism I expressed 22 days ago about being able to do the events in Europe in June this year has expired. Given the Coronavirus developments of the last week — both in Europe and the U.S. — we have decided to postpone all five events until June of 2021.
We have already signed new contracts with all the venues and our goal is to maintain the speaker line-ups as they are. (Naturally, some changes are to be expected.) We wish we could do the event sooner but early June is the only time of year we are able to do a European tour.
We are very saddened to not be able to do First Round in Europe this year as we were very much looking forward to it and couldn’t have asked for a better group of (76!) speakers to do it with.
The New York event on September 25, as of this writing, is still planned for this year but, as proven right now, things could change.
Hope everyone is staying safe and we very much look forward to getting back to some level of normalcy where we can keep bringing the joy of First Round to you.
