Monday, April 13, 2020 -- Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, American Consumer Shows (ACS) has rescheduled 45 events originally scheduled to take place between March 14, 2020 and June 7, 2020.
Unless prohibited by public health authorities, ACS will run all of its fall 2020 shows and full roster of 125 shows scheduled for 2021. New dates for the 45 rescheduled shows will be emailed to our exhibitors during the week that the show was originally supposed to take place. We are working diligently to secure great dates. Thank you for your patience.
As with previous cancellations since the company’s inception, ACS will apply exhibitor payments to future shows, as these payments are not refundable. Over the years, the company has cancelled a few shows due to severe weather and has followed the same policy in all cases. Exhibitors were happy to have the benefit of a rescheduled show and we are confident the same will be true here.
The decision to rollover exhibitor payments to future shows is not one taken lightly. Under these extraordinary circumstances we can best balance the long-term needs of our customers by doing what is necessary now to ensure that these shows continue to deliver the attendance, leads, and new business that all of our exhibitors rely upon. Carrying over exhibitor payments is critical to making sure that happens.
