Dear Exhibitors, Buyers and Attendees,
Over the last few weeks, the World Trade Center Miami has been monitoring the on-going COVID-19 restrictions and regulations to determine what their potential impact on the Americas Food and Beverage (AFB) Show would be this September. After much consideration and consultation with our partners and stakeholders, feedback from exhibitors and buyers about their concerns and ability to travel as well as our ability to deliver on our commitment to produce a quality physical show – we have decided to pivot to a virtual event.
We pride ourselves in providing our exhibitors a high-quality event with the best opportunities to meet their show objectives and facilitate desired business connections. As there are still substantial concerns regarding international buyer travel from several countries in the Caribbean and Latin America, we feel it is in the best interest of our exhibitors and all stakeholders to pivot to a virtual event again in 2021.
