Submitted on Thu, 03/12/2020 - 5:49pm
To our industry friends and colleagues,
As global uncertainty around COVID-19 (coronavirus) escalates, the health and safety of The JPMA Show attendees, employees and the community at large is our top priority.
The JPMA Board of Directors has unanimously decided to cancel The JPMA Show, April 1-2, 2020 in Dallas, TX.
This decision was made based on current CDC guidelines related to mass gatherings, to ensure the well-being of all show attendees, and in response to the many exhibiting companies that have called on us to take this action.
JPMA has been working for months to bring The JPMA Show to life, and we’re disappointed to have to cancel after fully planning an event that would deliver great value to the industry. That said, we will continue to move forward with key elements of the show, including:
- A robust virtual effort around the JPMA Innovation Awards judging and announcement
- Distribution of media swag bags and digital press kits to registered media
- Virtual panel discussions and educational content
We are doing the best we can to communicate as transparently as possible, despite the rapidly changing environment.
For the industry we serve, and for JPMA, we believe this difficult decision is in the best interest of all of us. We appreciate your understanding and support.
The JPMA Board of Directors
