No, Convention is not cancelled. Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our customers, partners, employees and, the community, and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO, and other relevant entities regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19), BrandSource has decided to make Convention nationally accessible, without the risks imposed by travel. We are introducing 2020 Virtual Convention, a truly national, fully digital, three-day event, which will take place on August 30 – September 1, 2020
[/foundry_toggles_content][foundry_toggles_content title=”Why change to virtual?”]
In order to maintain the goals while the country heals from the health crisis, we have made the decision to change the format of this August’s Convention from an on-site event to a virtual show. It wasn’t an easy call. We listened to feedback from members and manufacturers; assessed travel and exhibit center restrictions; and weighed guidance from national and local officials. After long and careful deliberation on our part, we concluded that a virtual Convention offers the best opportunity to deliver the most benefits of a BrandSource show while assuring the safety of our members, exhibitor partners, and staff.

Members and exhibitors will find many of the same hallmarks of the on-site event that they’ve come to expect and look forward to, including a kickoff presentation, keynote addresses, Stampede deals, a virtual product expo, one-on-one vendor meetings online, and plentiful buying opportunities at this critical time of the year.
