TBI’s top priority is keeping our partners, providers and employees safe at all times. Following the increasing concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the Delta variant, TBI has made the careful decision to postpone our BIG Event on October 6th, 2021 until 2022. This includes the cancellation of the BIG Event Opening Reception on October 5th, 2021 and TBI’s 30 Year Anniversary After Party on October 6th, 2021.
We know that this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to the BIG Event sponsors, but to the partners and industry professionals who were due to attend the event.
This was not a decision we have taken lightly, and our primary concern is always the responsibility we feel towards our partners and our provider sponsors, who fund the event.
To learn more about next steps and FAQs around our cancellation, please see below.
TBI's BIG Event Provider Sponsors: The TBI events team will be reaching out to all sponsors of the BIG Event within the next two weeks with information on how we will be proceeding moving forward for this upcoming year.
