FABTECH 2020 Cancelled
We will miss seeing everyone at the show this year, but understand safety is the number one priority. Below is the official statement from the FABTECH show organization. Remember, you can always reach out to our team (hyperlink) for guidance on selecting TRUMPF® spare parts, and Bystronic® spare parts, including power grid tubes and laser consumables for CO2 and fiber lasers. In addition, we can provide replacement components, spare parts and consumables for other industrial laser systems from most major manufacturers.
Official Statement from FABTECH
We are writing to share the unfortunate though not entirely unexpected news that we have been forced to cancel FABTECH 2020 in Las Vegas due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The health and safety of the FABTECH community and the communities in which we live and work will always be our top priority. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has made holding FABTECH 2020 in November impossible.
This decision was not made without painstaking consideration of alternative locations and dates. Ultimately, the volatile nature and duration of the circumstances surrounding this pandemic left us with no alternative but to cancel FABTECH 2020. This decision is one we hoped to avoid having to make, but we know the FABTECH community will understand the reasons for it.
Since 1981, FABTECH has served as the largest and most prestigious event for metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing in North America. Each of us, as FABTECH event partners, considers producing this event to be a great privilege, and we take this responsibility very seriously. We humbly recognize with tremendous gratitude that none of this happens without you, the industry community.
With FABTECH 2020 cancelled, we are now focused on FABTECH 2021 in Chicago next September. We are eager to be one of the signature industry leading events facilitating a resurgence in business conditions; providing an experience that allows you to meet with top suppliers, see the latest industry products and developments, find the tools to improve productivity, increase profits and discover new solutions for all your operational needs. We look forward to building on our industry collaborations as we create FABTECH 2021 with you.
We also invite you to stay tuned to fabtechexpo.com and our social platforms in the coming weeks and months, as we actively explore enhancements to our digital experience that extend the knowledge sharing and community building that make FABTECH unique in our industry.
We consider it a great privilege to serve you. Thank you. You have our solemn commitment that we will make every effort to not only meet, but far exceed your expectations in 2021. Additionally, we will continue to look at every possible opportunity to add value to this community. We welcome your input.
We are strong together. Please join us in proving that adversity only makes us stronger.
