360 Adventure Collective announced Tuesday that the Southeast Summer Expo and the Alabama Summer Expo have been rescheduled for August 2020.
The Southeast Summer Expo, initially scheduled for June 17-20, will now take place August 4-7 in the same location (the Greenville Convention Center in Greenville, SC). The Alabama Summer Expo, initially scheduled for July 8-9, will now take place August 12-13 in the same location (the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Center in Birmingham, AL).
The change of dates comes after the cancellation of the Mid-Atlantic Summer Expo (which was slated for June 9-11 in Edison, NJ) and the New England Summer Expo (originally scheduled for June 16-18 in Manchester, NH) due to social distancing measures put in place to limit the COVID-19 outbreak.
360 Adventure Collective is currently reviewing alternative show dates for both canceled events.
“Our sales reps, retailers, and vendors depend on these regional events to build strong, effective relationships in the outdoors industry. 360 AC is proud to provide a support system for those relationships, and we are committed to delivering excellence,” affirms Stacey Gellert, Executive Director of 360 Adventure Collective. “In making this decision, we’ve carefully surveyed our membership and taken into account all current projections of COVID-19. We want to ensure the health and safety of our members. Knowing how much our members count on these events, we are currently working to reschedule the Mid-Atlantic and New-England shows as well.”
