Response to COVID-19


As we've shared, we at Fuel Headquarters have been closely monitoring the developing news about the Coronavirus (COVID-19) from both the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC). We want you to know that we are placing the highest priority on the health and safety of all of our members, event attendees and partners.

After much review, dialogue with key stakeholders and considerable evaluation of the evolving public health situation, the Fuel Board of Directors has decided to cancel all upcoming Spark User Summits, Chapter Meetings, and Training Day events starting now, through April 30, 2020. For a complete list, please visit our website.

This is not a decision that was made lightly, and was determined based on the concerns voiced by our community, the cancellation of other events in the United States, Canada, and globally, as well as the increasing volume of confirmed cases of COVID-19. While Fuel continually strives to provide valuable in-person networking opportunities for its members, the health and safety of our community is of utmost importance.

This is an evolving situation, so we will be doing our best to provide our community with timely communication and reschedule these events for the summer or fall.

We appreciate your understanding that this situation is one that is beyond everyone's control. We will continue to provide updates and post information on our website. Any additional questions or concerns can be directed to

Past Spark User Summits:


“We never really had a full-on security team before, so getting out there and meeting people, working out what they’re doing and how they’re doing it, and discussing best ways of doing things really helps us plan our strategy for the years to come."
