GIE Makes No Plans to Do So
Due to the current concerns and uncertainties of the pandemic, the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute has announced the postponement of this year's Hardscape North America trade show, which is held in conjunction with GIE+EXPO.
The press release from ICPI, which produces the show, read, "Hardscape North America is known for attracting thousands to a dynamic event that includes one-on-one interaction, networking, hands-on demonstrations and social gatherings."
Charles McGrath, ICPI executive director stated, "Because we cannot currently guarantee the experience our attendees and exhibitors have come to expect, our board has decided to postpone the in-person event for 2020 and set our sights on how we can best serve our audiences this year. And we've already begun planning for an even bigger and greater HNA trade show and learning event alongside the GIE+EXPO in 2021."
The ICPI Board of Directors earlier this year also committed to continuing Hardscape North America in conjunction with the GIE+EXPO through 2023.
