The Plant Based World Expo is rescheduling both its Europe show and its North America show, according to an announcement.
“Our sole priority is to hold both Plant Based World Expos safely in 2021,” the announcement states. “There is an increasing concern among event organizers that indoor events may not be safely held until the fall months of 2021.” The team—which has been monitoring the vaccine rollout, international travel rules, and state and local government regulations—therefore chose to move the shows.
The new dates:
- Plant Based World North America is moving from June 16-17 to December 9-10
- Plant Based World Europe is moving from June 24-25 to October 15-16
“These additional months should prove crucial,” the announcement says, “allowing for more of the public to be vaccinated and better rapid testing for attendees, exhibitors, and press to feel more confident to attend. This also allows us the opportunity to observe tradeshows in other industries that open prior to us, so we can learn which safety measures work best and implement the most effective and accepted practices at Plant Based World.”
The announcement did not note changes to location, suggesting that the North America expo will still be held at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City and the Europe show will still be held at the Business Design Centre in London, UK.
