Our Path Forward for Events in 2020

Posted By: Vicki Franciosi TAA News & Updates,

2020 has certainly not been the year we expected! All of us have had to pivot and navigate this new global pandemic reality.

Like you, the Association has been working since March to assess the environment, climate, CDC guidelines, the stay at home and safer at home executive orders – all in an attempt to know how to proceed. We also collected member feedback from a survey and numerous conversations to assist us in our decision making.

We are now excited to share our Path Forward for Events in 2020! Please mark your calendars and watch for details coming soon about each of these new opportunities.

For those who are registered for the TAA In-Person Trade Show, both Exhibitors and Attendees, we will be in touch soon with specific instructions.
