ISSA Event Goes Virtual

ISSA Event Goes Virtual

(August 19, 2020) - Leading cleaning and hygiene expo, ISSA Show North America 2020, will now be run as a purely online event.

Earlier this month, ISSA announced it was considering its options over whether to hold an in-person event this year following the recent surge in COVID-19 infections and continued travel restrictions in the US. The show had already been rescheduled to November and moved to Las Vegas (NV) after it became clear it would not be able to run in Chicago (IL) in October.

Now the association has announced that ISSA Show North America 2020 will move forward to a fully virtual event experience over the scheduled dates of November 16-19, 2020.

As Lindsay Roberts, Group Director, ISSA Show North America, explained: “Our mission statement doesn’t change as we connect as a united industry this November. Every opportunity is still in front of us; it will just look and feel a little different. As we drew closer to the show dates it became clear a virtual event was our path forward.”

She continued: “We’ve all had to adapt this year, and the ISSA Show is no exception. This industry is resilient and positive [and] I believe we’ll take full advantage of the new opportunities that lay in front of us. We’re excited to build something effective and engaging for the industry we serve.”

The show will feature virtual exhibits, product showcases and a new product gallery. There will also be a conference program and networking opportunities via online chats and webinars. More details about how to sign up are available here. - (OPI)
