Announcement Regarding the 2020 Tri-State Seminar


The Tri-State Seminar, LLC Board of Managers have been monitoring the coronavirus situation, including information from the World Health Organization (WHO), U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and health agencies worldwide as well as state and local authorities.  We know that coronavirus is having a profound impact on all of you and the timeline for recovery is uncertain.

Our leadership is committed to the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors and volunteer staff, as well as the seminar venue and its employees.  For the first time in Tri-State history and after much discussion and consideration we have decided to cancel the 2020 event.

As we put the best interests of all you in the forefront of our minds, we look forward to hosting the best seminar come-back ever in 2021.  Save the date today and we look forward to gathering with you soon! 

May the Force be with You as we all navigate this uncharted space of the universe.

Upcoming Seminars

In 2019, we are moving the Tri-State Seminar up, into the month of August! What does this mean for YOU the attendee, speaker, sponsor or exhibitor? It means no more scheduling conflicts with WEFTEC, more space for exhibitors and better hotel rates at South Point Hotel.

We are excited to make this move and believe that our entire program will benefit from this decision. SAVE THE DATE now for 2019 and beyond!
