JIS Cancels Fall Shows In Miami, San Diego August 17, 2020 (0 comments)


Norwalk, CT—The fall 2020 JIS Shows in both Miami Beach, FL, and San Diego, CA, have been canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“After careful consideration and consultation with the Miami Beach Convention Center, the San Diego Convention Center and public health officials, JIS has made the necessary decision to cancel our remaining 2020 shows,” said a statement from Reed Exhibitions, the shows’ organizer.  

Both convention centers have been converted into auxiliary hospital space and testing centers to help battle the COVID-19 pandemic. At press time, neither one had a firm date to return to convention use. “After reviewing other options of relocation and dates, it was determined that JIS has no choice other than to cancel the [shows], and move towards a virtual/digital experience for our customers,” said the statement.

Jordan Tuchband, industry vice president for JIS, says 2021 events are going ahead as scheduled. 

“We look forward to being able to see everybody in person next year,” said Tuchband. “We look forward to bringing the JIS community together in a new, virtual way and in person at JIS March 2021 (March 22-24, 2021). For more information and the latest announcements, click here
