Cancelan otros dos grandes eventos en Chicago por culpa del Covid-19

Cancelan otros dos eventos

La pandemia del coronavirus ha forzado la cancelación de dos importante eventos que habrían traído a Chicago a miles de visitantes de otros estados y que hubiesen tenido un impacto económico de 210 millones de dólares.

Se trata del show de la National Restaurant Association, que estaba previsto para celebrarse del 22 al 25 de mayo, y The Inspired Home Show de la International Housewares Association, que iba a llevarse a cabo del 7 al 10 de agosto.

Ambos shows estaban programados para realizarse en el McCormick Place, el mayor centro de convenciones de Norteamérica, donde se han tenido que cancelar un total de 214 eventos desde que comenzó la pandemia hace un año, que habrían tenido un impacto económico de 2.9 billones de dólares, según dijo a Negocios Now Cynthia McCafferty, portavoz de la Metropolitan Pier and Exposition Authority, que opera ese centro de convenciones.

“Debido a la pandemia de Covid-19, el estado de Illinois ha emitido una orden, que está en vigor hasta principios de junio, limitando las reuniones a no más de 50 personas. Si bien esta orden podría modificarse antes del vencimiento, McCormick Place ha indicado que su capacidad para reabrir para eventos grandes está actualmente prohibida por la regulación estatal y no anticipan cambios antes de junio”, indicó la National Restaurant Association.

Por lo tanto, “lamentamos anunciar la cancelación del Show de la Asociación Nacional de Restaurantes de 2021 debido a la indisponibilidad de las instalaciones”, agregó la asociación en su sitio web.

The International Housewares Association informó por su parte que The Inspired Home Show fue suspendido debido al Covid-19.

“Dado que las restricciones estatales que prohíben las grandes reuniones siguen vigentes en el futuro previsible, y las restricciones de viaje del gobierno continúan impidiendo significativamente los viajes nacionales e internacionales, la Junta Directiva de la Asociación Internacional de Artículos para el Hogar ha tomado la difícil pero necesaria decisión de que The Inspired Home Show 2021, programado para realizarse del 7 al 10 de agosto de 2021 en McCormick Place en Chicago, no puede llevarse a cabo según lo planeado”.

La International Housewares Association reprogramó el evento para los días 5-8 de marzo del 2022, mientras que la National Restaurant Association tendrá su show los días 21-24 de mayo del próximo año.

Se estima que ambos eventos habrían traído más de 100,000 personas al McCormick Place.

McCafferty dijo que ambos shows generan un impacto económico en la región de 210 millones de dólares.
