Ten at the Top’s young professional summit, Pique, which was already postponed once, has been canceled for this year.
A new date for the event, originally scheduled for March 23 at Greenville’s Huguenot Mill and Loft with author Sallie Holder as the keynote speaker, has not been determined, but a series of one-hour “Sneak Pique” virtual networking events will set the stage for ticket holders monthly, leading up to the summit, according to a news release.
Contents of the events, starting Sept. 14, will not be revealed ahead of time — hence the “sneak” element. Ticket holders for the 2020 event will be refunded, according to the release.
“As September gets closer, it seems unlikely that an in-person event for 300 people will be possible, and there are challenges to moving an event such as Pique to a virtual platform,” Jessica Miserendino, chair of the Pique planning committee, said in the release. “With networking being such a big part of the event as well as the executive roundtables providing valuable interaction with high-level executives from a variety of fields, we didn’t see a way to recreate that experience online.”
