Without a doubt, COVID-19 has been detrimental to the trade show and events industry. It is still unclear as to when events will begin again, and when they do, they will certainly be run differently for a time after the pandemic. While face-to-face events have been placed on hold, a hard truth has become very apparent – there is no true alternative to trade shows.
We are social beings that crave human connection. We gather to learn, grow, share, experience, and network. This is the foundational purpose of trade show events – to create and enhance environments in a way that will foster more meaningful connection, more powerful face-to-face interaction, and a higher level of understanding between our clients and their customers.
Those of us at ADEX International stand anxiously ready to jump back into serving our clients to facilitate their trade show and marketing goals. Until then, we want our clients to know that we miss them and hope they are staying well.
