After thoughtful consideration about the health and safety of attendees, Chauffeur Driven (CD) and the National Limousine Association (NLA) decided to cancel the 2020 CD/NLA Show scheduled for October 14-17 in Orlando. The decision was based on direct input from operators and vendors.
To get a sense of how operators felt about the show, a survey was sent out gauging interest in attending. Nearly 900 people responded. Although many in the industry are eager to meet with friends and peers, it was decided that October is still too soon – safety being the top priority. The recent spike in COVID-19 cases and the lingering slowdown in business travel were also contributing factors in the decision.
“We know how much the industry enjoys coming to our events, and what it means to their businesses, but we felt it was the right move for everyone involved to cancel,” explains CD President/Publisher Chris Weiss. “Even though we won’t be able to get together face to face, we are planning a world-class and well-rounded virtual event that will be the next best thing.”
“While we were looking forward to seeing our members and friends in October, the safety and health of everyone in our industry must come first. I assure you that the NLA will continue to offer support, education, and resources as we navigate our way on the road to recovery,” added NLA President Robert Alexander.
