SupplySide East 2020, which was originally being held April 13-14 of this year, but postponed until June 23-24 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, has officially been cancelled. The event will return April 13-14, 2021 at the Meadowlands Expo Center in Secaucus, NJ. One of the contributing factors of the decision is that the Meadowlands Expo Center is currently serving as a temporary hospital, with no clear timeline for how long the facility will be required for this use.
“While team SupplySide hopes that our entire country is well on the mend by late June, we believe the decision to cancel the 2020 event is the best course of action,” said Jon Benninger, vice president and market leader for SupplySide, in a press release. “Our focus now is on supporting the many businesses and people who make up this great industry as we navigate today’s challenges together.”
According to the press release the SupplySide team is providing digital opportunities for visitors and exhibitors that allow for personal connection, innovation discovery and product development to continue. “For 25 years, we have offered business solutions for the industry, and we are redoubling those efforts with our proven digital platforms and products as well as new solutions,” said Benninger. “Through Natural Products Insider, Food & Beverage Insider and SupplySide Connect, we offer proven ways for brands and solution providers to connect, and expect to have even more unique opportunities to share shortly.”
