Update on Cancellation of PIE


Update on Cancellation of PIE

Last week, the San Diego Convention Center (SDCC) announced that every event scheduled for March had been cancelled upon direction of the San Diego City Government and Health department, . including five major trade shows affecting more than 50,000 attendees..

Prior to this announcement, Marcy and I felt we had to move quickly to cancel PIE 2020, in order to give each of you as much warning as possible so you could make arrangements concerning travel and shipping of equipment.

We are working now to have a plan in place that will minimize the affects of this action to our attendees and exhibitors. We understand that these changes have a broad reaching affect on all of us. Our goal is to announce this plan no later than Mid April.

We are seeing reports daily from our extended PT family that travel is being cancelled, meetings are going virtual, and contact is being minimized. This is a very sad time for us all. The very nature of our respective businesses depends on good communication both digital and in person. We can only pray that this disruption will dissipate quickly and we can get back to a normal business footing as soon as it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your patience and many messages of support in this most difficult time. If there is anything we can do to help, please don’t hesitate to contact either Marcy or myself.
