The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) announced at 8 a.m. today the cancellation of AirVenture 2020. The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh was informed of this decision at that same time. We will now move forward with our plan to adjust our cancellation policy to accommodate EAA AirVenture guests who have lodging reservations on the UW Oshkosh campus. We ask that you select one of the following options:
- Transfer all money from the 2020 reservation to a new 2021 reservation. You will be offered the opportunity to keep the same room type that you had in 2020. We recommend you select this option as it will secure your lodging rooms for EAA AirVenture 2021. We look forward to serving your lodging needs in 2021. After May 22, 2020, this option will automatically be activated for your reservation and all monies will be moved to 2021.
- Request a full refund for all monies paid for 2020. With this option, you would not be able to guarantee a specific room type for 2021 until reservations open on Monday, Oct. 5, 2020 – the date we have established to accommodate lodging reservations for EAA AirVenture 2021. You would participate in the normal registration process for those reservations. A refund would be available for anyone who has already lost a deposit fee from a previously canceled reservation for 2020.
Due to staffing issues driven by furloughs instituted by University of Wisconsin Oshkosh as we address the impacts of COVID-19, we ask that all communication be received via this SELECTION FORM so that we can efficiently respond to your requests. We ask for your patience and understanding during these uncertain times. We are truly grateful for the relationship we have with each of you as our EAA AirVenture lodging guests. We will be staffed 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday. We will respond as quickly as possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
