On Saturday, July 31, 2021, the Board of Directors of STEAM Region 19 and the Planning Committee for miniCAST 2021 in El Paso, Texas voted to cancel this year’s event which was scheduled for Friday, Oct 8 - Saturday, Oct 9, 2021.
The Board and Committee did not take this decision lightly as miniCAST is a premier annual event and much work had already been done towards this year’s conference.
The primary issues that the Board and Committee considered were uncertainty with the Delta variant of the Coronavirus and how that would affect attendance, as well as issues with the venue that would have made attendance less enjoyable for attendees and exhibitors.
We strive to make miniCAST El Paso an experience unlike any other in the area, and if that cannot be provided with 100% certainly, we would rather not have a conference.
We apologize for the inconvenience. Any funds already submitted will be 100% refunded. We appreciate your willingness to participate in miniCAST and we want to let you know that plans are already being made for a 2022 event. Thank you as always for your support.
