OUR EVOLVING RESPONSE TO COVID-19
We are committed to keeping you informed.

Prosper has decided to reduce the initial three-day-two-night conference to a single-day hybrid after the Jan 4th, 2022 COVID-19 update from B.C. Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, following the recent exponential surge of the Omicron Variant. The update highlighted new provincial restrictions on gatherings, which left Prosper in a predicament due to the scale of the conference. As a result, Prosper 2022 will now be hosted at the UBC Sauder School of Business instead of the Hyatt Regency Vancouver hotel.
This decision came to be after the suggestions put in place by Dr. Bonnie Henry mentioning, “everything we do now makes a difference.” Prosper believes that it is our responsibility to help maintain the well-being of the overall community; and that becomes difficult when there are numerous attendees arriving from all over the world to participate in a conference. With too many variables to account for (additional & more transmissible variants, provincial lockdown, travel restrictions) and risks far too great on the overall community with such a large-scale event, we have decided to take action now.
Lower Mainland students will be able to attend in-person while students who are unable to travel can participate virtually. Prosper's mission has always been to foster future generations of business leaders, and we will continue to uphold that goal with our signature Prosper professionalism.
We realize that this update may come as disappointing for many participants. However, Prosper looks forward to providing the revolutionary three-day hotel business conference experience in 2023.
Students who registered prior to this update will receive a full refund of registration fees (minus any applicable administrative fees) within the next four to six weeks. A separate email with additional details will be sent. Previously-registered students will also receive premier access pricing (25% off) towards new registrations.
