As a result of the Coronavirus Disease (COVID19) public health emergency, SupplySide East has been postponed to June 23-24, 2020. The event will still take place at Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ.
“With the uncertainty caused by the evolving coronavirus situation, this postponement is the best course of action for our industry, exhibitors and attendees,” said Jon Benninger, vice president and market leader for SupplySide. “This is an unprecedented time for our industry, and our focus will continue to be on what is best for our industry partners.”
The intent of today’s announcement is to get this information about the new dates to the market immediately, and additional details will be forthcoming. The new dates will provide exhibitors more time before incurring shipping and other costs, and all participants will face less pressure to make travel commitments now, when the situation is still so fluid.
Benninger said that the SupplySide team will continue to monitor the situation and work with industry to navigate this challenging time. In addition, SupplySide will use its content and editorial resources, including Natural Products Insider and Food & Beverage Insider, to inform and guide the market as the coronavirus situation impacts supply chains and normal business operations.
“We take our role in this industry very seriously, and will strive to help our industry understand the business impacts of this situation and the best ways to mitigate them,” he said. “This is new territory for all of us.”
