Citing the ongoing COVID-19 public health emergency and shutdowns on travel and large gatherings, events company Emerald has postponed the Medtrade West conference and expo from April 12-14 to July 12-14.
The event will still be held at the Phoenix Convention Center in Phoenix, Ariz.
Emerald decided on the date change to give participating companies time to plan their participation while serving the need for in-person events.
“After consulting with key, long-standing exhibitors and attendees, we made the decision to secure dates in July in order to ensure maximum success for the event for all of our customers,” said York Schwab, associate show director. “We feel the additional time will allow both exhibitors and attendees of Medtrade West more time to make plans for live participation in Phoenix.”
Aiming for an in-person event will ensure that attendees can continue taking advantage of show features such as networking and educational opportunities and that Medtrade West meets the industry’s expectations for an industry event, according to a statement from Emerald.
Emerald note that it will update the Medtrade West website with information on the July 12-14 edition promptly.
