Concerns about the Coronavirus Delta variant led the Private Label Manufacturers Assn. to postpone its annual Private Label Trade Show to next January instead of this Nov. 14-16.
In announcing the date change – to Jan. 30-Feb. 1, 2022 – PLMA President Peggy Davies voiced optimism that by then there will be significant nationwide progress on vaccinations – including shots available for children.
“Beginning in the new year, more companies will return to the office, corporate travel restrictions increasingly will be lifted and people will become more comfortable gathering in large groups," she said. "And international borders will be reopened, an important factor for the large contingent of national pavilions that attend the Chicago Private Label Trade Show.”
The in-person event will remain at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Ill., just outside Chicago.
