As many of you in Manitoba may know, the province instituted new Public Health Orders on Friday, December 17. These new health measures were in response to the Covid-19 Omicron variant. These new measures are quite extensive, and they impose significant limitations on religious gatherings in the province. The imposition of these new Public Health Orders has required us to make some critical decisions regarding Missionfest Manitoba.
While we have purchased the technology and are confident in our capacity to present Missionfest Manitoba as a virtual event, we do not feel that is the best option for our exhibitors or those who have attended and supported the event for the past 30 years. We had announced previously that we would be hosting a Hybrid Event, holding the in-person event, while also utilizing the value-added capabilities of our Virtual Event technology. We still feel that this decision best serves the interests of our exhibitors and puts us in the best position to accomplish our purposes.
With these considerations in mind, we are announcing a change of date for Missionfest Manitoba 2022. Missionfest Manitoba 2022 will be held on April 29, 30 and May 1, 2022. We will still be meeting at Church of the Rock in Winnipeg. Our plenary speakers have not
changed. Nor has our intention to accommodate in-person exhibitor displays.
Though changing the date is not ideal, we do hope it allow us to proceed in the best way possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
