Press Release - Haste & Hustle

Press Release



TORONTO, ON – March 11th, 2020 – Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and our desire to keep our community safe, Haste and Hustle has made the difficult decision to postpone this year’s event on April 1st at Meridian Hall and ensure the quality of the event is maintained at a future date.

The Haste and Hustle team and partnerships offer a sincere apology for the rescheduling of Haste and Hustle 2020. Shauna Arnott, Founder of Haste and Hustle, has carefully selected a lineup of speakers for the event, which resonates with a broad audience but especially emerging to mid-stage entrepreneurs.

This postponement includes Sir Richard Branson, who is to share his inside tips, strategies, and perspectives on how to build and maintain a successful business at the event.

Current ticket holders will be reissued tickets for the newly scheduled event and can expect the same agenda and quality of experience. In fact, Haste and Hustle is working on additional offerings, such as webinars and smaller networking events within local communities. More information and FAQs will be available shortly on our website and posted to our social media channels.

As a business owner, adaptability remains at the core of Arnott’s qualities. She emphasizes the importance of reacting and balancing the challenging moments that can undoubtedly affect business plans. Arnott hopes rescheduling of the conference demonstrates the resilience and perseverance necessary to maintain success within business.

The team has every intention to continue ‘business as usual’ to provide an exciting conference for attendees, with the support of our amazing speakers, stakeholders and partners.

Haste and Hustle is in its third year and as a growing company, the team will continue to serve and support entrepreneurs by providing access to the tools, education, and networks they need to kick-start their business. Arnott and the team encourage the public to follow Haste and Hustle on social media @hasteandhustle for valuable content and the journey to Haste and Hustle 2020.

Haste and Hustle launched its first event in Niagara, Ontario and brought together 800 innovators, business professionals and aspiring entrepreneurs. In its second year, over 2,400 attendees filled the seats at the Sony Centre. The growth in attendance represents the value and education attendees walk away with – Haste and Hustle 2020 will be no exception.
