Update on COVID-19/coronavirus and upcoming events

Dear Live Talks Los Angeles patron:
Like you, we are concerned about and have been closely monitoring the situation around the COVID-19/novel coronavirus. I want to assure you of my concern for the safety, health and wellbeing of all our guests, speakers and dedicated staff.  
In line with last night’s recommendations from Governor Newsom, we are postponing all of our March and April events, and will work on rescheduling as soon as conditions allow. If you have purchased tickets for any events being postponed, you will receive an email with specific instructions for each event. 
Of course, we’ll keep you apprised about events scheduled from April forward as soon as possible. 
As the founding producer of this business, which is reliant on ticket sales from live events, I am extremely grateful for your support over these past ten years, and hope we can count on it going forward as we navigate these challenging times. 
As always, we invite you to experience Live Talks Los Angeles via our video channel on YouTube. If you prefer podcasts, many of our events from over the last decade are available here
These are especially challenging times for those of us in the live event business. Thank you again for helping to make Live Talks LA possible. We couldn’t have made it this far without you.
Go on gently,
Ted Habte-Gabr,
Live Talks Los Angeles
