Our 2020 Event Update
We are in unprecedented times. While so much of the world is adjusting to limit the spread of COVID-19, we know that all of us through our martial arts schools are feeling the impact firsthand. It is always our mission at Kovar Systems to be there to provide support and guidance whenever possible. One way we do that is through industry events that bring us together and embrace our “Rising Tide Lifts All Boats” philosophy. For the 2020 ProMAC International event, co-hosted by Zen Planner and Revgear, unfortunately the tides have shifted this year. Your safety and the safety of others are of the utmost importance to us. Based on all the latest information, it does not appear we will be able to host you as we intended, and have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s event in Denver, CO.
We know that a lot of our clients and friends were looking forward to our fourth annual ProMAC International Conference this May in Denver - we were too! But just like we are doing in our schools, we will adapt to this as well. We are proud of our martial arts families for taking great action during this time of crisis. Just as many of you have pivoted quickly to keep students engaged and embraced new ways of doing business, we are exploring new ways to provide ongoing support outside of our annual event.
Immediately, we are keeping clients connected through our Satori Business Community and Satori Instructor Alliance, where we are sharing new information daily with clients about what’s working in our schools today. If you would like more information about getting involved in those, please CLICK HERE to speak with a member of our team.
For events, we still have smaller 1.5 day regional events scheduled throughout the end of the year. These events will take place on the West and East Coasts, as well as a Central region in Texas. These events have the same timely business content you expect from ProMAC International, but on a more local level with a smaller gathering size. This should mean less restrictions around hosting, and our regions may be close enough to help reduce the need for air travel. We will navigate these events as new information becomes available regarding the COVID-19 situation. Current information can be found at www.KovarSystems.com/Events .
We are also currently in the process for planning a virtual conference event! As we have all been learning about our ability to connect in spite of physical distance and we’re excited to offer a digital means to share some of the latest news on how schools are surviving or even thriving through the current circumstances. Please stay tuned for more details, including dates and format.
And finally, while this year will not allow us to host the ProMAC International event we’d hoped for, dates are already confirmed for our 2021 schedule. Please mark your calendars for April 29 to May 1, 2021. Our team is excited to help you reach your personal and professional goals, and we can’t wait to see you again at the next opportunity!

We will reach out to all registered attendees in the coming days with options to move forward, please check your ticket buyer email inbox. Thank you for your patience and willingness to keep the martial arts industry afloat!
