Published in Member Communities on October 01, 2020

Medtrade has cancelled its in-person event scheduled for Nov. 2-4, 2020 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. In place of their live event, they will be hosting the Medtrade Virtual Conference on Nov. 4-5, 2020. More details about their virtual conference will be released by Medtrade soon.

"Continued developments and uncertainty have made it impossible to bring our community together safely and successfully in Atlanta," said show organizers. "This is due to the ongoing progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the latest government data, measures, and guidelines on phased reopening plans in the U.S.; current restrictions on congregating and large gatherings imposed by the State of Georgia and other government and public health authorities; and the various company-imposed travel restrictions on employees, affecting attendees and participating companies."
