International Boating and Water Safety Summit Cancelled

With the ongoing coverage surrounding the coronavirus outbreak, our top priority is to keep our attendees safe and informed. Due to the March 15 recommendation by the Centers for Disease Control that organizers cancel in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the U.S., and Arizona Governor Ducey’s call for the cancellation of gatherings of over 50 people, the 2020 International Boating and Water Safety Summit is cancelled. In addition, overwhelming travel restrictions from states and organizations was also considered in this decision.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and look forward to seeing you next year at the 2021 conference in Washington, D.C. from March 21-24.

For those who prepaid, you will automatically receive a full refund in the same payment method. If you have any questions regarding your refund, please contact

You are responsible for canceling your own traveling arrangements.

  • As soon as possible contact the Renaissance Phoenix Glendale Hotel directly to cancel your hotel room reservation at (623) 937-3700.
  • Most airlines are waiving cancellation fees at this time.

We appreciate your understanding and support of the International Boating and Water Safety Summit.
