Vision Expo East and LOFT NYC, both scheduled for 26-29 March 2020 in New York City, have been cancelled due to the advancing spread of the covid-19 virus.
Vision Expo East will be consolidated with Vision Expo West in Las Vegas, 23-26 September 2020, while LOFT NYC organisers said they are working with suppliers and vendors to find alternate dates later in the year.
Vision Expo East organiser, Vision Council CEO Ashley Mills said, “This was a difficult decision for our organisation, but ultimately The Vision Council’s board of directors believes the safety and well-being of our members, exhibitors, attendees and staff must come first.”
Leading up to the Vision Expo West event, Mills said Vision Expo will endeavour to serve the industry by creating ways to connect and collaborate, including virtual meetings between contracted exhibitors and pre-registered attendees. Vision Expo will also work on creating customised services for participants in order to maximise successful outcomes at the Vision Expo West event, said organisers.
