It looks like our 2020 General Conference will be postponed until 2021, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. This report from UMResource:

March 23, 2020

Nashville, Tenn.: Subsequent to the announcement by the Executive Committee of the Commission on the General Conference that the 2020 General Conference will be postponed, the full Commission met March 21, 2020 to determine next steps to take in setting a new date.

After hearing recommendations from Sara Hotchkiss, Business Manager of the General Conference, and discussion of possible alternatives, the Commission made a determination that the General Conference will not meet in 2020 as originally planned and elected to work toward setting a date in 2021.

Not much further to report at this time. This became necessary when the venue where the General Conference was to be held in Minneapolis canceled all events through at least May 10 (GC was scheduled to run May 5-15).

Since it seems certain that General Conference will not be held until sometime in 2021, the Eastern PA “Listening Sessions” that were scheduled for April 2, April 4 and April 20 have now been canceled. The conference plans to reschedule them at an appropriate time once General Conference has been rescheduled.
