The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries has called off the ISRI 2020 Convention & Expo in Las Vegas, citing ‘COVID19 concerns’.
‘Given that the World Health Organization officially deemed this a pandemic, and in light of the many states declaring an emergency along with associated closures and curtailments of normal daily life, it is impossible for ISRI to hold the convention as planned,’ declares ISRI chair Brian Shine. ‘For the safety of all involved, we cannot move forward with the ISRI2020 convention in April of this year.’
And he adds: ‘We are in the process of reviewing all options for alternative dates or venues, different methods of information delivery, and much more. We recognise that the annual ISRI convention has become one of the most important events in the recycling industry each year and will seek to find ways to continue to provide as much of that experience as we can under the circumstances.’
More information about the impact of this cancellation will be sent to pre-registered attendees and exhibitors in the coming days. Shine concludes: ‘Let’s continue to work together through this pandemic and into even greater success in the future.’
