IGC Show Releases Coronavirus Statement
IGC Show organizers recently released the following statement:
IGC Show organizers are closely monitoring the Corona Virus situation. As you know, the IGC Show is still way off in August – nearly 6 months away. Our expectation is that the situation will resolve itself by then. We are in constant communication with McCormick Place and the City of Chicago regarding any news/updates, and are monitoring the CDC website.
Please do keep in mind that all of US-based trade shows that have postponed due to the virus have heavy attendance and many exhibitors from Asian and other overseas locations. Many of those individuals can’t leave their home countries and/or gain entry to the U.S. because of health restrictions.
In contrast, IGC Show has less than 3% international attendance/exhibitors. The vast majority are from the U.S.
IGC Show is busy planning for another successful year as the only & largest event exclusively for Independent Garden Centers. We’ll be here for you with a dynamic 3 day event this August. Please be assured that the safety and health of our attendees, exhibitors and their families will always remain our top priority and we will communicate any updates with you as we get closer to the IGC 2020 Show.
