Chesterfield, Mo.—The National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) has informed exhibitors of its decision to cancel its contract with Baltimore for the 2021 Expo due to COVID-19. The event was originally scheduled to take place April 28-30 at the Baltimore Convention Center.

At this time, the convention center remains closed, as does the Expo host hotel. In addition, the City of Baltimore currently is limiting gatherings to 10 people or fewer.
“NWFA has been planning for this possible scenario and is in discussions with Orlando to host Expo this coming July,” said Penny Key, NWFA’s meeting and trade show director. “We do have a verbal agreement and hope to be able to provide details once contracts are signed.”

Exhibitors and attendees are invited to visit the NWFA’s website and click on the “coronavirus update” tab for updated information.
