Questex, the parent company of Nightclub & Bar Show, has postponed the event following recent reports from the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Originally scheduled to run March 30-April 1, the Nightclub & Bar Show has been rescheduled for June 22-24 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
“We recognize all the hard work that so many have put into preparing for their exhibit booths, speaker presentations and entertainment programs that accompany every Nightclub & Bar Show event,” Questex CEO Paul Miller says in a March 12 statement. “This will be the first time in 35 years the event has been forced to postpone. The health and wellness of the bar and restaurant community, and the community at large, makes postponement unavoidable.”
Nightclub & Bar Show is the nation’s most influential gathering of bar and restaurant owners and operators. The event offers exclusive access to leading suppliers launching new and exciting products, endless networking opportunities and the latest industry topics and trends through an array of expert speakers, educational workshops, offsite events, tours of top Las Vegas venues and amazing nightlife events.
Helping industry professionals gain critical skills to ensure their success, the three-day event brings together leaders, innovators and experts through the 2020 Nightclub & Bar Show educational program. This year, the program offers more than 70 information-packed sessions across five tracks covering: operations, people and staffing, guest experience, food and beverage and marketing and promotions from more than 40 industry experts.
Elsewhere, EskoWorld 2020, the annual technology-focused event for packaging professionals that had been scheduled April 28-30 in Dallas, has been cancelled due to the continued escalation of the coronavirus outbreak. All registrations will be cancelled and refunds will be issued in the form of original payment.
“Ultimately, the safety and well-being of our customers and staff is our primary concern,” organizers said in a statement. “We did not undertake this decision lightly, as we know how valuable EskoWorld is to you and Esko, alike. You come to the event to hear from Esko product experts, receive the 1:1 training you can’t get elsewhere, and to network with your industry colleagues and Esko personnel.”
Celebrating 35 years as the nation’s most influential gathering of bar and restaurant tastemakers, Nightclub & Bar Show is owned by Questex and is the go-to resource for the hospitality industry. Mirroring the fast-paced, trend-setting nature of the hospitality industry, Nightclub & Bar has been providing the specific tools bar and restaurant owners, operators and managers need to grow their businesses, compete, and succeed in this hyper-competitive and dynamic industry.
