PRINTING United Alliance cancels its in-person expo, scheduled to take place in just five weeks, Oct. 6-8, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The board of directors felt the ability to deliver a safe, successful trade show became hindered with uncertainty regarding the delta variant of coronavirus and its effect on registration and exhibitor participation.
“We want to sincerely thank our vast industry partners — including exhibitors, members, and attendees — for their collective support during this ever-changing landscape and time,” says Ford Bowers, CEO, PRINTING United Alliance. “We conferred with dozens of exhibitors from all segments and sizes, regularly monitored attendee sentiment, and the weight of opinion supported the difficult decision to cancel this year’s show.”
Mark J. Subers, president of PRINTING United, adds, “In an instance such as this, we set aside our own financial considerations when we cannot be sure that the ROI for the exhibitors and the attendee experience is exceptional.”
Additional information will be sent to exhibitors and registered attendees.
PRINTING United Expo 2022 will take place Oct. 19-21, 2022, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
