Due to the still unstable situation caused by the Covid-19 virus, the largest congress industry expo, IMEX America 2020, was canceled.
IMEX America was scheduled to take place, as it does every year, at the Sands Expo Convention Center in Las Vegas, from September 15th-17th.
ʺIt is with great regret and disappointment that we are announcing that we have made the difficult decision to cancel IMEX America 2020.
Our industry has been impacted heavily by the global lockdowns and travel restrictions imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic and we know how many of you were looking forward to coming together again in Las Vegas this fall. We’re acutely aware that since lockdown began, IMEX America 2020 has come to represent a beacon of hope for the entire business events community. We assure you, no-one is more disappointed than the IMEX team that we can’t fulfil that expectation.
The IMEX Team will also be extremely busy planning forward confidently and with passion for IMEX in Frankfurt and IMEX America 2021, when we look forward to welcoming back the global business events community face to face.ʺ, stands in their press release.
