(KNSI) - Organizers with the 2020 Expo for Seniors say they are canceling this year's event.
The event's cancellation is in response to COVID-19 and the uncertainty of large group restrictions for the upcoming months. Jodi Speicher of Good Shepherd Community and event co-chair said in a press release, "It is with a heavy heart, we announce the cancellation of this year's expo event."
More than 1200 people come through the doors, and there are over 100 vendor booths, but, Speicher continues, "With the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, and more importantly, to ensure the safety of our attendees, vendors, and committee, we feel it is best to cancel the event this year."
The event was to be held August 15th this year, but organizers say they plan to bring the Expo for Seniors to the River's Edge Convention Center August 21st, 2021.
