5 LAKES Front COVID-19 Statement

Due to the worldwide Coronavirus/COVID-19 response and in consideration of the health of our community, 5 LAKES Front is going to be rescheduled to Friday, November 13th. We are in full support of social distancing at this time where proactive steps are essential in containing the network effects of the virus. We understand that our conference is roughly two months out, and many things can change between now and then. However, we want to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone, and feel this is in the best interest of our attendees, speakers, vendors, volunteers, and community.

We understand that rescheduling means some of you may no longer be able to attend the conference. We will be working with speakers, attendees, and our community partners to accommodate these adjustments, including full refunds to attendees unable to make the new date.

We know that some speakers may be unable to move to the new date, and some attendees will be greatly disappointed that they are unable to see sessions from speakers that can not reschedule. As such, we are investigating small online events in the coming months. More details to come soon.

The amount of feedback and support that we have gained from the community is incredible. The drive to help others is incredible, and we can not wait to see it happen!

We are excited for the new date as this allows us more time to craft an even better experience for everyone. Please stay safe and we look forward to seeing everyone on Friday, November 13th.


Can I get a refund on my ticket?

Absolutely. If you'd like a full refund, please send us an e-mail at: hello@5lakesfront.com

Will my ticket be valid for the rescheduled date?

Definitely! Any tickets purchased will be valid for the rescheduled date.

Will the conference be different?

As of this time, no. We are planning on the same content, just updated for the passage of time.

Will 5 LAKES Front be re-opening the CFP?

We only will re-open our CFP in the event that the majority of our speakers can not reschedule. The quality of talks submitted was absolutely stunning. If a few of our speakers are unable to speak during the rescheduled date, we will reach out to other speakers that submitted to our first CFP.
