The 2021 IISF Trade Show will Take Place

February 16 - 19, 2021

TRADE SHOW WILL TAKE PLACE WITH COVID-19 PRECAUTIONSIISF

After much thought and consideration, the supervisors of the IISF Super Trade Show and Extravaganza have decided to move forward with our scheduled event.

We understand your concerns but please know that we will do everything we possibly can to make our vendors and attendees as safe as possible.

To help in our efforts to stop the spread of COVID-19, we will follow CDC guidelines and protocol. We are continuing to monitor CDC, Sate, and local health department guidelines and will adapt to those changes accordingly. The following mitigations will be in place for the 2021 Trade Show:

  • Temperature Checks: Anyone having a temperature of 100.4 or higher will be required to have secondary screening. If occurrence continues, that person will be asked to leave and see medical attention
  • Hand Washing & Sanitizing: Hand washing and sanitizing stations will be located throughout the facility.
  • Face Masks: Face masks must be work and will be strictly enforced.
  • Social Distancing: We encourage social distancing with additional signage and floor and ground markings.
  • Bathroom Cleaning: Potillo Sanization Services will be on site fully disinfecting with Electra Static Ionization for Microbil Bacteria, following CDC guidelines and protocol. Bathroom urinals will be disinfected daily.

Reduced Exhibitor Fees

We also understand we are all in the same situation and know that we will need to work together in order to make this happen. With that being said, the supervisors decided to offer discounts on all space to vendors. Membership and insurance prices will remain the same, however, space will be discounted 50%. Keep in mind, if you choose not to exhibit in 2021, your membership dues still need to be paid in order for your company to be listed in the Directory / Buyers Guide as a non-exhibiting supplier. For those companies who have paid 2021 contract fees in full, you will have the option of exhibiting in 2021 or rolling the refund to 2022 or receiving a refund by mail.

Please understand that things will be different this year in regard to locations. Our plan is to utilize the middle rows for inside vendors and work our way out in regards to placement as not to utilize the entire building. Social distancing will be put into place. Outside booth placement will be at the exit of the trade show building.
