Following the worldwide escalation of COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus, the retail technology show Shoptalk has been rescheduled. Originally set to begin March 22 in Las Vegas, the event will now run Sept. 14-17 at the time and place originally reserved for its sister Groceryshop show. Both shows were to take place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
ShopTalk officials said Groceryshop would be rescheduled for Spring 2021, with additional details to be announced at a later time.
"The guidance of various health and safety organizations and our commitment to ensuring the well-being of our community necessitated the shift," Shoptalk said. "We considered input from many of our sponsors, attendees and speakers, as well as the impact of widespread corporate travel restrictions during March across the retail industry."
The organization added: "We’re working hard to transition our sponsors, attendees and speakers to the new dates, and we expect Shoptalk 2020 to be the best event we’ve ever held."
