Alexandria, VA (November 17, 2020) - The Air Conditioning Contractors of America (ACCA) announces its postponement of its 2021 Annual Conference and Expo. After careful consultation with the ACCA Events Committee regarding the health and safety of everyone in the HVACR industry, ACCA has made the difficult decision to postpone its 2021 Conference and Expo, scheduled for February 21-24 in New Orleans.
“Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, the ACCA Events Committee felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation,” said Barton James, ACCA president and CEO. “While there is disappointment regarding the postponement of this event for our members, event attendees, partners, and exhibitors, we know this is the right decision based on the information we have today.”
Factors that were considered to determine the cancelation included; reviewing information about COVID-19 infection rates, exhibitor travel and quarantine restrictions, and member travel abilities.
“We were hoping to be able to see everyone in New Orleans, but we know this is the best decision for right now. We are looking forward to seeing everyone at an ACCA conference very soon,” said Brian Stack, chairman of the events committee. “We are offering attendees the opportunity to transfer their paid registration to a future in-person ACCA event. Registrants and exhibitors will be contacted directly with their options.”
