After closely monitoring the risk and impact of COVID-19 on a daily basis, and speaking at length with members of the baking community, the organizers of the International Pizza Expo and International Artisan Bakery Expo, which had been scheduled for March 31- April 2, 2020, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, have postponed the shows to June.
The two events will now take place Friday, June 26 through Sunday, June 28, 2020 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
“The recent developments regarding COVID-19, including, but not limited to, the declaration by the WHO of COVID-19 as a pandemic, the accelerating pace of confirmed cases worldwide and domestically, the current quarantines and travel restrictions imposed by government authorities affecting participating companies, various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees and the cancellation of several key Int’l Pizza Expo and Int’l Artisan Bakery Expo customers, partners and speakers, made it impossible to effectively execute a March event that delivers the level of education, connection, and customer value our community expects,” the postponement announcement reads. “Driven by our responsibility to produce a great event and best serve the interests of our community, we made the decision to postpone the events until June 2020.
Exhibitors, attendees, and speakers are encouraged to read the full postponement announcement to find FAQ’s related to the show and its new dates.
