COVID-19

Thank you for your interest in PLMA’s U.S. Private Label Trade Show taking place in November in Chicago. PLMA is grateful to those exhibitors who have already committed to more than 1,300 stands as well as to the hundreds of retailers and visitors who signed up to attend as soon as registration opened in early June.

PLMA is closely monitoring CDC guidelines as well as state and local ordinances in regards to COVID-19. Weekly briefings are held with the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (DESCC), which is hosting the PLMA Show. The staff there is following both EPA and CDC protocols for maintaining a safe and clean facility. In the near future, the State of Illinois is expected to provide trade show guidelines which PLMA will, of course, follow.

In the meantime, the Convention Center, in collaboration with the Rosemont Dept. of Public Safety, health professionals and PLMA, is developing best practices to be implemented at the venue. A key feature includes a show floor that will be configured for appropriate physical distancing.

Collectively, we must do our part to make the show and venue safe for all. We all know this is an evolving situation and, in the upcoming weeks and months, detailed information will be provided to all trade show participants.
