LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The annual ABC Kids Expo that was scheduled to take place in September in Las Vegas will now be virtual-only.
The organizers sent the following email to attendees on Tuesday:
To our ABC Family & Friends:
We know how important ABC is to most of you that count on the annual event to move your business forward, to produce or learn about new products first-hand, and gather together to meet new people, renew friendships and conduct profitable business.
While we strongly believe in the power of personal connection to discover, educate, and motivate our industry, we are also committed to creating a safe space for our community.
ABC Fall 2020
ABC was prepared to follow all safety measures and protocols in the production of ABC 2020 to help ensure the safety of all of our industry partners and team members.
However, due to the increase in virus cases throughout much of the nation including Las Vegas, we have made the difficult decision not to move forward with the event this September.
We will stay in contact with you, and only together will we determine when it is safe and appropriate to convene once again as an industry for the next ABC Kids Expo.
We realize that many of you are anxious to get back to business and we are excited to work with you on our Virtual Tradeshow Platform!
- Enabling buyers and sellers to connect year-round
- Will feature a searchable, easy to navigate directory
- Both brand and new product listings, imagery and video
- Presentations, webcasts, live chats as well as pertinent educational content.
While we look forward to seeing you in person at the next ABC event soon, we encourage you to stay connected by participating virtually. Details will be announced soon!
For those exhibitors that have paid for space at ABC 2020 or for retailers that have purchased vouchers, we will be contacting you as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience as we work through the logistics involved.
In the meantime, thank you for being a valued member of the ABC community and we hope you stay safe and healthy.
