ASA NETWORK2020 Goes Virtual
The industry event still takes place October 7-8, 2020.
The American Supply Association (ASA) is shifting its NETWORK2020 event to a virtual format. Virtual NETWORK2020 will be held Oct. 7-8, which aligns with the first two days of the originally scheduled in-person NETWORK event that was to take place at the Fairmont Millennium Park in Chicago.
“While we most certainly would prefer to hold the industry’s biggest and most-anticipated event in person, we can never lose sight of the fact that the health and safety of our members is of utmost importance,” said ASA CEO Michael Adelizzi. “With concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic still highly prevalent and the uncertainty surrounding the progress of the city of Chicago’s reopening plan, the best course of action is to shift to a virtual format this year. ASA plans on presenting a virtual event like no other.”
More details on Virtual NETWORK2020 will be released in the coming weeks, including full registration details. The event will, as always, feature a robust educational component, as well as the presentation of awards. NETWORK2020 also will feature another annual staple — the popular distributor-manufacturer conference booth appointments, which will be conducted virtually this year.
