As the situation surrounding COVID-19 continues to evolve, many trade shows and industry events have been postponed or canceled in order to protect the health of attendees, exhibitors, and employees. Many shows with an original date in March-June 2020 have postponed with hopes to hold the show in the fall, while others have canceled altogether with the intention of returning in 2021. Some canceled events will have a virtual experience instead, utilizing web conferencing services like Zoom.
