NEW YORK: The 11th annual SALT Las Vegas investment conference, which was due to take place from May 19 to 21, has been canceled as a result of public health concerns about COVID-19.
“The well-being of the SALT community is our first priority and, after consulting with numerous experts, we determined cancellation is the best course of action,” organizers said. “The event will not be re-scheduled for later this year. We look forward to hosting SALT Middle East in December and resuming SALT in the United States in 2021.”
The Middle East conference this year will be the second to be held in Abu Dhabi, after last year’s inaugural event.
SALT describes itself as “a global thought leadership forum fostering collaboration at the intersection of finance, technology and geopolitics.” According to organizers, the flagship annual SALT Las Vegas event attracts about “2,000 of the world’s foremost investors, business executives and political leaders for three days of idea sharing, networking and entertainment.”
