Asheville, NC — May 21, 2020 360 Adventure Collective, the trusted member association that has brought focused, regional events for sales reps and retailers for over 30 years, has decided to cancel the 2020 New England and Mid-Atlantic regional trade shows due to safety concerns related to the spread of the novel coronavirus.

The three cancelled regional trade shows were originally scheduled for June and July: the Mid-Atlantic Summer Expo (June 9-11 in Edison, NJ), the New England Summer Expo (June 16-19 in Manchester, NH), and the Mid-Atlantic Summer Market (July 8-9 in Ellicott, MD).

“After much consideration and input from our board members and members in the northern areas, we’ve made the difficult but right decision to cancel these specific summer shows,” notes newly appointed 360 Adventure Collective Executive Director Stacey Gellert. “Initially, we discussed postponing these shows until the fall, but the massive impact the virus has had on these regions and the safety of our members and attendees is our top priority and so our focus is onward to Winter 2020- 2021.”

Three 360 AC summer trade shows will still take place in August: The Southeast Summer Expo in Greenville, SC; the Alabama Summer Expo in Birmingham, AL; and the New England/Mid-Atlantic Paddle Sport show in Sturbridge, MA. The team is continuously monitoring COVID-19 progression and will follow all recommended guidelines in place at the time of these shows by the CDC and state and local Health Departments.
