The digital Morningstar Investment Conference is an immersive online event that features all the key benefits you love about our flagship industry conference, bringing together industry leaders and investing experts to discuss the latest developments and share new perspectives on the market.   

When and where is the Morningstar Investment Conference this year?

Will any form of live event take place for the Morningstar Investment Conference?
There will not be any live event taking place in association with the Morningstar Investment Conference in 2020. 

Why is the conference being rescheduled and delivered in a completely digital format?
As we shared back in April, we announced our decision to postpone our spring conference in Chicago due to the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. Morningstar is continuing to follow government guidelines to make decisions that keep the health and safety of our delegates, volunteers, and staff as the top priority. As an update, the Morningstar Investment Conference in Chicago has been rescheduled for Wednesday and Thursday, Sept. 16–17, 2020 and will be a completely digital event.   

Where can I find the agenda for the digital Morningstar Investment Conference?
We are working to confirm speakers and agenda details for the conference. Just as our in-person conference includes keynote speakers, panel discussions, and networking opportunities for attendees, these experiences will be a part of the online event.  

How will the content change as a result of being a digital event?
Over the last 30 years you’ve come to expect insightful keynotes, panel discussions, and networking opportunities. We plan to deliver the same for our 2020 conference and look forward to sharing details with you in the coming weeks.  

What kind of software will be required to view the speakers and panel discussions, and interact with people?
The digital Morningstar Investment Conference will be web-based, so all you will need is a computer and an internet connection.  

How will I receive a refund for the live conference, originally scheduled for June 3–5, 2020?
Since we are rescheduling the Morningstar Investment Conference to be completely digital, you will receive a refund for the live conference event originally scheduled for June 3–5, 2020. You will receive an automatic refund back to the credit or debit card that you used to pay for your conference registration.  

Will my registration for the live conference roll over to the digital event?
No, your registration for the live conference will not roll over to the digital event registration. You will receive a refund for the live conference event originally scheduled for June 3–5, 2020. You’ll need to register for the digital event in September; we look forward to sharing registration details with you soon.  

When will I receive my refund?
The refund should be back on your credit or debit card by May 28, 2020.  Please contact us if you have not received your refund by this date. 

Do I need to cancel my hotel room?
Due to the circumstances, hotel reservations made through Morningstar’s room block were automatically cancelled in April. Attendees should have received a cancellation confirmation email from the hotel directly. If you made your own hotel reservations outside of the conference block, you must cancel directly with the property you selected.   

My company is a sponsor of the Morningstar Investment Conference live conference originally scheduled for June. How will we receive a refund of our sponsorship fees?
Sponsorship fees are fully refundable. Morningstar sales representatives will work directly with sponsors on next steps. If you don’t know who your Morningstar contact is, please reach out to Daniel Skelton, Senior Exhibitor Manager.

If your company paid by check, please contact Daniel Skelton and he will reach out with information about your refund. If you have not paid and have an outstanding balance due, your account will be closed.
