Could the coronavirus (COVID-19) effect the FCTM Annual Conference?

FCTM continues to monitor the outbreak and spread of COVID-19 and assess its implications on future FCTM events. The health and welfare of participants is of upmost importance, and we will follow the guidance of local authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). At this time, FCTM conferences and events will proceed as planned.


We will continue to monitor the situation, and will be working with Caribe Royale, our venue for the FCTM Anuual Conference, to help ensure the health and safety of all conference attendees.


For your health and safety, wash your hands properly and frequently, avoid close contact with people who are sick, avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and stay home when you are sick. We encourage everyone to follow the Prevention Guidelines from the CDC.
