Another victim of the coronavirus issues is Expo West 2020, the world’s largest annual natural products show. Organisers of the show New Hope Network have just announced that the Expo West show will be officially postponed to a later date and possibly a new location announced by mid-April this year.
Fred Linder, Group President of New Hope Network, said:
“As with all our events, it was the intention here at Expo West in Anaheim, to follow official guidance from local authorities and to listen to the voices of the community we serve and support, in order to maximise the health of the industry.”
“Today, it is clear the majority of those voices are saying they want Expo West but not this week. And so we are being guided by that majority in postponing the show.”
“We will be working closely with all our customers and partners across the industry to identify a new date for the show later in the year, and providing the service and support to deliver the connections and experience everyone expects from Expo West and the New Hope Network.”
