PLMA cancels January Private Label Trade Show Dec 15, 2021

Event had been postponed from November 2021.

The Private Label Manufacturers Association (PLMA) has canceled its January 2022 Private Label Trade Show in Chicago due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 on business travel.

Originally set for November, the show had been postponed to Jan. 30- Feb. 1, 2022.

“This action was taken for a number of reasons, all related to the impact of COVID-19 on the safe movement of exhibitors and visitors who annually attend our Chicago show,” said PLMA President Peggy Davies.

Davies noted that PLMA has plans for three major trade shows for retailers and store brand manufacturers during 2022: PLMA Global, a new online event set for March 28-31; the annual World of Private Label show in Amsterdam, May 31-June 1; and the traditional fall Chicago show, November 13-15.

Due to the current COVID-19 situation, however, the in-person Chicago show is not possible for January, Davies said.

“Because of the surge in cases nationwide, we are seeing an extension into 2022 of corporate travel limitations, if not new outright bans,” Davies said. “With the onset of colder weather and more indoor gatherings, an uptick in cases in the U.S. was predicted by most experts, but its extent has been greater than anticipated.”

In addition, the outbreak of the omicron variant has exacerbated the COVID-19 situation overseas, resulting in the imposition of tougher restrictions on all international travel. This makes passage to Chicago by all trade show participants problematic, Davies added.
