The AAPEX Show Management has sent out a message that should make many people happy.
“While we know everyone is mindful of the evolving COVID-19 situation, we hope you, your family and your business are in good health.
At this time, we plan to proceed with AAPEX 2020 as scheduled, Nov. 3-5. We continue to pay close attention to the evolving COVID-19 situation and its potential impact on the show. Our primary concern is providing a trade show in a safe and healthy environment.
