Kindred 2020 Rescheduled

September 14-17, 2020 • San Diego Convention Center

In light of continually developing circumstances, we are postponing Kindred 2020 to September 14-17, 2020.

Over the last week, concern has mounted rapidly about the COVID-19 coronavirus. The World Health Organization recently raised its threat level, and as a result, an increasing number of companies are proactively instituting travel bans and restrictions.

There is no suitable replacement for the physical gathering of a community of people who want and need to do more work, together. Our priority will always be the health and safety of participants, speakers, partners, colleagues, and vendors, and we want to be sure that those planning to attend Kindred 2020 are able to do that with the blessing of their employers and a clear conscience.

Kindred is relentlessly committed to our mission of advancing sustainable, purpose-led business transformation and impact amongst our community of leaders, so we will enthusiastically forge ahead with Kindred 2020 this September 14-17, at the San Diego Convention Center.

Please visit us at for more information and regular updates. We hope you’ll be able to join us and look forward to working with you to build the future of purpose-driven business.


What are the new dates for Kindred 2020?

We are postponing Kindred 2020 to September 14-17, 2020. Our home is not changing – we are delighted to still be at the San Diego Convention Center.

I’m already registered for Kindred 2020 in May. Does my registration roll over to the new dates?

Yes, absolutely! We’re excited you’ll be joining us for Kindred 2020 during our new dates. You do not have to do anything for your September registration except enjoy future newsletters and information that we send out in preparation for Kindred 2020. As a thank you to our re-committed Kindred 2020 participants, we are extending the early bird rate of $1600 to all paid registrants who had purchased tickets to attend in May prior to our official announcement. You should expect to see a refund of the difference by April 10, 2020.

I’m not sure if I’ll be able to make Kindred 2020 any longer. Should I cancel my registration?

We recommend you hold off on canceling your registration until you are positive you can no longer attend Kindred 2020 during the new dates, as we won’t be able to honor the reduced $1600 registration fee if you cancel now and rebook later. If you can definitely no longer attend Kindred 2020, please email us at to cancel your registration for a full refund by March 31.

I can no longer make Kindred 2020 during the new dates. Can I get a refund?

Yes, Kindred will work closely with all paid registrants who wish to cancel to issue a refund. Please contact Kindred at by March 31 in order to receive a full refund.

I already booked my flight to San Diego in May for Kindred 2020. What can I do to get a refund?

Many airlines are currently waiving cancellation and/or change fees. Please visit your airline’s website or travel insurance provider for more information on updated change and cancellation policies.

I already booked my hotel for Kindred 2020 in May. What should I do to cancel?

We are working directly with our official hotels to rebook with the best rates for our new dates. All current reservations booked through Kindred’s official partner, Passkey, for May will be canceled and your credit card will not be charged. Kindred will be in touch by May 1 with instructions on how to book new discounted rates with partner hotels. If you booked outside of Kindred’s official link, please work directly with the hotel on your cancellation.

I’m a sponsor at Kindred 2020 – will my sponsorship automatically be moved to the rescheduled September event?

Yes, and we will be contacting each of our sponsors individually to confirm the details over the coming days.

I submitted for the Hosted Brand or Hosted Creator program already – is my application still valid?

Yes, all applications for Kindred hosted brand and creator program are valid. For those who’ve already been accepted, we would love for you to take part in our rescheduled event and will be contacting you soon.
