Event Postponed

We have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone the 2021 Upper Midwest Conference and Trade Show, scheduled to take place October 11-12, 2021 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented situation.

Throughout this pandemic, we have made every effort to follow both local and national guidance to keep our members and conference attendees safe. According to the CDC’s current guidance, several factors can contribute to the likelihood of attendees getting and spreading COVID-19 at large events. One risk factor to consider is the number of cases in the community. As of right now, the state of Minnesota is reporting high community transmission of the more-contagious delta variant. While we are very disappointed that we are unable to hold this event, we know it’s the right decision given this information.

Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.
