ABSDA Cancels In-person 2021 Expo

The Atlantic Building Supply Dealers Association’s (ABSDA) board of directors had decided not to proceed with the ‘2021 ABSDA Building Supply Expo’ in-person event in Halifax, NS, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. “Our 2020 Expo was a tremendous success, laying the groundwork for the future. The decision to pull back on the 2021 in-person event was arrived at after many discussions with members, board deliberations, and consulting with officials at the Halifax Convention Centre,” says the association. The Expo, which was first held in 1955, is one of the longest running industry events in the country. The association says it took the safety of attendees into consideration, along with the ever evolving COVID-19 situation and its implications as the pandemic enters its eighth month. At this time, ABSDA is exploring options for connecting suppliers and dealers in 2021.
