Diversified Communications, owner and organizer of AEC Next and SPAR 3D Expo and Conference, has made the difficult decision that, due to the magnitude of the unanticipated public health and safety issues posed by the rapidly escalating COVID-19 outbreaks and contagion, to reschedule the upcoming edition of AEC Next and SPAR 3D, which was planned to take place on June 3-5, 2020. The progress of the pandemic has made rescheduling to July 27-29, 2020 unavoidable. Fortunately, we were able to secure the same venue, McCormick Place, in Chicago, IL. Read the full announcement here.
With recent news from around the world, we understand there are concerns and questions around the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) in relation to the event and would like to reassure you that the health and safety of our exhibitors, attendees, and staff are our priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and following the guidance of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO). Our current intention is for the event to take place as planned June 3-5, 2020, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL. To date COVID-19 has not impacted exhibiting companies and we are working diligently to confirm the intention of Key Buyers to attend.
As the date draws closer, we will be working with the venue, our contractors and regulators to assess risks and to implement protocols. Please continue to check this website for updates as they develop. We look forward to a safe and successful event in June.
