USA Trade TastingUSA Trade Tasting, one of the leading trade shows in USA that was set to happen on May 26-27, 2020 in New York will now be postponed to May 25-26, 2021.

In the interest of addressing the health and safety concerns of our stakeholders the Executive Committee of Beverage Trade Network, Organizer of USA Trade Tasting show in New York has made the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 USA Trade Tasting to May 25-26, 2021.

Over the last few days, it became clear that keeping our community safe and healthy went beyond any additional hygiene measures we could put in place. Additionally, in the wake of the announced European travel ban and the understanding from many of our members and exhibitors that domestic travel has already been limited, the decision to cancel the event was the right one.

Beverage Trade Network, the organizer of USATT said safety of our speakers, exhibitors, visitors, partners and our staff was top priority and it was best we postponed the event to 2021 as we were still not sure if the situation would get better in few months.

“Whilst following government advice and what’s happening in USA and especially the pace of new state protocols coming up, we spent the last couple of weeks speaking with partners to assess the impact the outbreak would have on our event and what measures we could put in place in order to mitigate risks and deliver a safe, successful event for all,” Sid Patel, CEO of Beverage Trade Network said.

FAQ

What happens to my visitor ticket?

Visitor tickets purchased by Eventbrite will be valid for 2021. As the entry to the show was free and no charges were taken, there is no further action needed from you. We will move your registration to 2021 event.

What happens to my exhibitor fees and booking?

All 2020 exhibitors will get credit towards 2021 and the same contract and booking will stand in place. Your table spots, and exhibitor table numbers will remain as it stands. Your price will not change.

What happens to my hotel and flight booking?

We understand that many folks have booked flights and hotels. Many airlines and hotels are allowing cancellations in response to the coronavirus. We are unable to provide information on contracts between customers and third parties, as these have not been concluded with USATT. You have 2021 dates, one option is to change your booking to 2021 dates.
