Given the global public health pandemic and the Center for Disease Control guidelines, the Bouchercon 2020 Co-Chairs and the National Board have decided to cancel Bouchercon 2020 in Sacramento.


Bouchercon 2020 was notified by the Hyatt Hotel that it would be canceling all of its reservations made with the convention rate. The Sheraton Hotel requires that registrants personally cancel their lodging reservations.

Yes. Persons who were registered on April 16, 2020 to attend Bouchercon 2020 will receive a full refund by check. We are waiting for all the cancellation paperwork ink to dry and are anticipating mailing out refunds during June. Please contact [email protected] if your mailing address has changed since you registered.

You also have the option of donating your registration fee to Bouchercon 2020’s charity beneficiary, 916 Ink. Please contact [email protected] ASAP if you’d like to do that.
