TUCSON 2021 SHOW DATES CHANGING!!!!!
Hello G&LW Tucson Holidome and Gem Mall Buyers:
This email is being sent to all Buyers of all Tucson Gem Shows (listed below) that are proceeding with their 2021 Tucson events.
The Tucson show promoters (listed below) wanted everyone to receive this announcement first, and at the same time, so that everyone has the same information.
Even though most shows have received their event permits, the COVID-19 cases in Arizona are increasing, as well as the infection and hospitalization rates, which now make the original Tucson dates untenable.
For that reason, the Tucson show promoters anticipate that Pima County Health Department will rescind all the permits in the coming days.
Therefore, we have decided together to POSTPONE THE TUCSON GEM SHOWCASE BY EXACTLY 10 WEEKS.
G&LW’s HOLIDOME AND GEM MALL TUCSON NEW SHOW DATES ARE APRIL 10-18, 2021!
We considered the following in reaching this difficult decision.
- It will require several months to administer 100 million doses of the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine as well as tens of millions more doses by the soon-to-be-approved second vaccine by Moderna.
- Meanwhile, other countries are immunizing their citizens as well.
- In addition, experts anticipate that this third wave will subside with the warming spring temperatures.
Therefore, we expect April to have a much lower infection rate and as a result, travel restrictions may well be eased, and life will start returning to normal.
As we stated, you are among the first to receive this announcement.
Please share this information widely and let your buyers know. Many who planned to stay away in late January may now choose to come in mid-April.
We look forward to seeing you April 10-18, 2021 at the Holidome and Gem Mall Tucson Shows!
