The Rotary International Convention, scheduled for 12-16 June 2021, in Taipei, Taiwan, will now be a virtual event in response to the ongoing threat of COVID-19.
We are sorry that we will not see you in Taipei this year, but this decision, made by the Rotary Board of Directors, is necessary to protect the health of everyone involved. We will share more details about the 2021 Rotary International Virtual Convention soon. Here’s what you need to know now:
Virtual Convention Registration
The Virtual Convention will be open to all Rotary members and participants. Event registration will open in mid-April and will include a promotional fee of $49 for 21 days, with an increase afterward to $65.
The Rotaract, Youth Exchange Officer and Inter-Country Committee preconventions will be held 10-11 June 2021. The cost of each preconvention event is $20. Both the convention and preconvention events include access to the House of Friendship. Please continue to check back for more details and updates.
Virtual House of Friendship
Our virtual House of Friendship is where convention attendees gather to learn about Rotary products and services, share project information, and shop.
Those interested in showcasing their product or service should email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information or to request an exhibit application.
Convention, preconvention, and ticket refunds
RI is currently in the process of automatically cancelling and refunding all existing registrations. This includes purchases made for Rotaract, Youth Exchange, and Intercountry Committees preconvention events, and ticketed meal events.
We kindly ask that you NOT contact RI Registration to inquire about registration, ticket, or housing cancellations as they work diligently on finalizing the process of those cancellations and refunds. Those who had already canceled prior to today will receive a refund of the $50 processing fee.
Host Organization Committee (HOC) ticketed event registrations
The HOC event ticket fees will be refunded by the Taipei HOC. For more information, please visit rotarytaipei2021.org.
No action is required from those attendees who made accommodations secured within Rotary’s official housing block. Maritz, formerly Experient and Rotary’s official housing partner, has already cancelled all individual and group room block reservations and refunded the groups who made partial payments.
We will post more details as they become available.
