PFA cancels its 2021 Annual Conference & Trade Show
Paper First Affiliates (PFA) released a statement about the cancellation of its Annual Conference & Trade Show, which was scheduled for Jan. 30-Feb.1, 2021 in Washington, D.C. Additionally, PFA has booked its 2022 event at the Gaylord National in Washington, D.C. for Feb. 3-5, 2022. The official PFA statement read:
For the past 26 years, Paper First Affiliates has looked forward to connecting our members and vendors at our Annual Conference & Trade Show. The success of the show has been built through the years with the support of all our industry partners and PFA has been a leader in delivering an innovative, fun, and successful order writing show. After careful consideration, in light of ongoing COVID-19 developments and uncertainty, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our in-person event at the Gaylord National in Washington, DC, January 30 – February 1, 2021. Working closely with the hotel, we have rebooked the event at the Gaylord for Feb 3 – 5, 2022.The health and safety of our members, vendors, and all our partners is our highest priority. Rescheduling this will enable us to provide the experience that all our participants and exhibitors have come to expect and enjoy at our show in a safe environment.
We know this will come as an enormous disappointment, not only to our exhibitors and members, as we know this has become one of the best order writing & important shows in our industry, but to us, as well. Keeping our members connected to our vendors is paramount to our core values. With that in mind, we are excited to announce that we will be hosting an on-line event, that will truly showcase PFA’s partnerships and innovative solutions, it will be unlike anything else out there. We are eager to share all the details and we will, very soon.
Our team will be reaching out directly to exhibitors and attendees with more detailed information about next steps and registering for the 2022 event and refunds, if necessary. We look forward to hosting our on-line event in 2021 and coming back to our in-person event in 2022.
Until then, stay safe and healthy!
