Due to uncertainty concerning COVID-19, and out of safety concerns for its members and suppliers, the LPG Expo and IMARK Plumbing Annual Spring Meeting scheduled for Jan. 25-Feb 2 at the Omni LaCosta Resort & Spa, Carlsbad, California, have been cancelled.
In a statement released by the groups, President John Aykroyd stated, "While we are encouraged to see our economy and our nation continue to re-open, we understand that there are still many people that are uncomfortable with the idea of cross-country air travel and/or participating in large gatherings. The state of California recently lengthened the mask mandates as well as lowered the threshold for large gatherings. These requirements would have required all attendees to provide proof of vaccination or a negative test to attend the meeting. These factors make it inconceivable for us to host the kind of meeting for industry leaders that would generate a solid return on investment for our attendees."
In the meantime, Aykroyd said that LPG and IMARK staff will collaborate with their board of directors, member advisory committees, and vendor advisory councils to consider alternative options for hosting meetings and events for future dates within the 2022 calendar year. “Please stay tuned for more information to follow," he said.
