IMPACT Conference 2020


COVID-19 Information

ALM's IMPACT and Coronavirus

All of us at ALM have been as watchful of the COVID-19 pandemic as we are sure you have been. To best care for our members, the public, and our staff, we are making the choice to postpone IMPACT 2020. Everyone’s health is more important. The 2020 IMPACT Conference will be held November 2-4, 2020, at The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

We know this is a worrying time for everyone; all of this has been unexpected and unprecedented and the situation seems to be fluid as it changes daily. We encourage you to rely on the CDC as the official source for status updates and recommendations. We encourage gathering facts for making good decisions; rumors and panic are not the cornerstone of a reliable organization. We absolutely want to assure you we are available to answer any questions and help textile care professionals around the globe in any way we can and keep moving forward, crossing each bridge as we come to it.


IMPACT Registrants

All current conference registrations will be transferred to the new date. If you are a sponsor or presenter, you will be contacted separately when more information is confirmed.

If the registered individual has a conflict, ALM will gladly offer one of three alternatives:

  1. Transfer the registration to another individual at the company.
  2. Transfer the full amount towards the purchase of an ALM publication, program, or other future event for any individual at the company.
  3. If neither of those options are feasible, we will work with each person to satisfy the situation.


If you previously cancelled your registration, regardless of reason, and received a partial refund, ALM will apply the previously non-refunded amount in the same manner as those individuals that did not cancel.


Travel and Hotel

At this time, please be sure to cancel travel arrangements, including flights and rental cars. However, you may want to hold on cancelling your flights. Some airlines are allowing passengers to reschedule with no fee, so if you plan to attend the new IMPACT, look to change your flights to November 1 through November 4 (IMPACT will end before noon), to ensure you don't miss a moment of IMPACT. Please check your airline's website for details.

The Broadmoor has cancelled all ALM block rooms. If you did not reserve your room within the ALM block, or you chose another hotel, please contact the hotel's registration line immediately to avoid charges.
