In the interest of addressing the health and safety concerns of our stakeholders the Executive Committee of Beverage Trade Network, Organizer of USA Trade Tasting show in New York has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 USA Trade Tasting to May 25-26, 2021.
Over the last few days, it became clear that keeping our community safe and healthy went beyond any additional hygiene measures we could put in place. Additionally, in the wake of the announced European travel ban and the understanding from many of our members and exhibitors that domestic travel has already been limited, the decision to cancel the event was the right one.
Beverage Trade Network, the organizer of USATT said safety of our speakers, exhibitors, visitors, partners and our staff was top priority and it was best we postponed the event to 2021 as we were still not sure if the situation would get better in few months.
“Whilst following government advice and what’s happening in USA and especially the pace of new state protocols coming up, we spent the last couple of weeks speaking with partners to assess the impact the outbreak would have on our event and what measures we could put in place in order to mitigate risks and deliver a safe, successful event for all,” Sid Patel, CEO of Beverage Trade Network said.
