It’s fair to say that this year’s trade show and special events season is off to an unprecedented start.
In February and early March, remote walk-throughs of our Source University training center were a big hit at both the Southeast Petro-Food Expo in Myrtle Beach and WPMA in Las Vegas, which was one of the best WPMA conventions in recent memory. The Source booths (booth 208 for WPMA and booth 317 for Southeast Petro) welcomed a steady stream of visitors who got a brief look at our training facility.
Two trade shows that Source North America had planned to attend in mid and late March were postponed due to COVID-19. Show organizers for M-PACT report that the show has been rescheduled for July 22-24, 2020, in Indianapolis. Organizers for NECSEMA, which was originally scheduled for March 18 in Springfield, MA, have also indicated the show will be held in the future. Please visit the event websites for details.
Virtual Events Gain Momentum
Some industry events are being re-cast as virtual experiences. Of note: the NACS State of the Industry Summit will be available for online viewing April 14, and the Fuels Institute’s FUELS2020 is preparing a virtual event to be held May 19-21.
