Monterey, CA—The 2020 Organic Produce Summit (OPS) has been cancelled due to the impact of COVID-19, according to a press release. It was previously scheduled for July 8-9, in California.
“Based on the ongoing monitoring of health advisories, and recent statements by the governor of California related to large gatherings, we have determined in order to protect the health, safety, and well-being of all Organic Produce Summit attendees that we cancel this year’s event,” said Susan Canales, President of OPS, in the release. “We look forward to hosting OPS 2021, next July 14-15, in Monterey.”
Exhibitors, sponsors and attendees interested in attending the 2021 OPS show have the option of rolling over their participation or requesting a refund.
“We are, of course, disappointed OPS 2020 will not go on as scheduled. At the same time, we know it is the right decision,” Canales added. “Our thoughts are with those individuals and families who are suffering during this pandemic. We are so proud of how our industry has reacted during this unprecedented time and look forward to coming together next year.”
