AWCI's Convention & INTEX Expo: CANCELED
AWCI's Convention & INTEX Expo, scheduled for Oct. 17-20 in New Orleans, has been canceled due to concerns related to COVID-19 and Hurricane Ida.
This decision was made in the best interests of the association and its members, guests and staff. COVID-19 and the delta variant are still serious concerns. Hurricane Ida hit Louisiana as a Category 4 storm, having a substantial impact throughout the state and resulting in massive damage to the electrical grid. Concerns about appropriate levels of staffing in hotels, restaurants and other venues are only exacerbated due to both COVID-19 and the hurricane.
Because of these factors, it has become clear that it is not possible for AWCI to hold—and for New Orleans to deliver—the first-class convention and trade show experience that we demand and our attendees deserve.
We hope to see you in Grapevine, Texas, April 3-7, 2022, for AWCI's Convention & INTEX Expo!
