SuperZoo Postponed Until 2021
World Pet Association (WPA) has decided to not proceed with SuperZoo 2020, which was scheduled to be held Aug. 30-Sept. 1 at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The 2021 SuperZoo show will be held Aug. 17-19 at the Mandalay Bay.
After recently sharing updates about COVID-19-related safety measures and the availability of complimentary hotel rooms for registered buyers, the organization did not make the decision to postpone the show lightly, according to WPA interim president Vic Mason, who sent out an announcement late yesterday.
“It's become obvious to us that moving forward with SuperZoo 2020 in a format that abides by health and safety regulations will compromise too many components for us to deliver the experience—personal and professional—that makes this show the biggest and the best,” Mason said in his statement.
He added that the organization would be following up with additional information.
“As you can imagine there are numerous details for our teams to reconcile,” Mason said. “We will be sending out detailed information with answers to questions around exhibitor policies and other logistics affected by this postponement.”
