The health, safety and wellbeing of our members, partners and event attendees are always our top priority when planning for the Midwest Leadership Summit event. 

Due to the developments around the COVID-19 virus, Central Exchange has postponed the Midwest Leadership Summit from Tuesday, April 21 to Thursday, July 23. While this decision was not easy, it is the best decision in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our attendees. We are doing our part in slowing the virus' spread in our community. 

We are committed to providing you the fantastic content, speakers and inspiration you’ve come to expect, now with a new date.

Central Exchange will contact registered attendees with next steps early next week.



We want to be as transparent as possible and keep you up to date with our plans as the situation surrounding the novel COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak unfolds.

Central Exchange is committed to the health and safety of all our members, partners and event attendees. This is our first priority in planning for the Midwest Leadership Summit. Currently, we are exploring all options for our summit. We know this is a rapidly evolving situation and we thank you for your patience as we find a solution that is best for our community.

We want you to know the steps we are taking to make decisions about our event planning. They include:

+ Closely monitoring the situation both on a large international scale, as well as at the local city level where the conference will be taking place

+ Following guidance issued by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the local health authorities

+ Working with our conference location on the health and safety measures they are enacting

+ Receiving guidance from professionals in the health, travel, event planning, and tech fields as is relates to the planning and execution of the event

We thank you for continuing to be a committed member of our Central Exchange community. We will keep you informed and will be in touch with registrants with our latest developments.
