Citing the ongoing threat to public health from the coronavirus, Overland Expo has just announced that they will be postponing all 2020 in-person events.
“The safety and health of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff are of the utmost importance to us. After months of deliberation, research, and consultation with local officials, we have decided to postpone all in-person Overland Expo events until 2021. Like you, we eagerly anticipate each Overland Expo event. The events are more than a place where overlanders congregate to share experiences, products, and wisdom; they are a way for the community to come together, connect, and celebrate our shared love of the overlanding lifestyle—and have fun, too.”
Having considered all possible options which would have allowed them to adhere to “the highest level of safety without compromising the event experience,” Overland Expo has ultimately decided that the best course of action is to refrain from hosting any live events in 2020.
“We fear hosting any one of our in-person events could threaten the health of those in the overlanding community and beyond.”
