SAMA looked forward to the 2020 event – 20th anniversary, targeted 200 exhibitors and 2000 attendees….
Great plans met a stifling “pause” 60 days short of the event date.
Any event planning during this time of Covid 19, includes the commitment of a facility for regimented cleaning and a dedicated focus on the event to provide every possible safety measure.
The decision to cancel the 2020 was not easy – looking into any virtual option was both untested and not cost effective. This pause has allowed SAMA and the Trade Show Committee to be able to assess and review what theme and message should resonate once we all go back to full gear.
Bringing back manufacturing to the US as well as the ongoing challenges of a trained workforce are high on the list. Continue to stay safe and well. Know that the 2021 show will be a safe environment with social distanced dedicated exhibitors who chose to stick with their booth space for 2021.
