Moncton, New Brunswick—Showrunners have decided to postpone the 2021 MEET Show—again. The Mechanical Electrical Electronic Technology tradeshow will move from May 5-6, 2021 to May 4-5, 2022 and will return to its regular biennial cycle.
“We were hoping to be in a position to hold MEET in 2021 but given the current situation, postponing it is the right decision for the event and for the safety of everyone involved,” said Shawn Murphy, show manager for MEET. “Many of the exhibitors have expressed their desire to get back to live events, and although the wait will be difficult, we know that MEET will return stronger than ever, fitting of the high standards that exhibitors and attendees have come to expect.” The show will remain at the Moncton Coliseum Complex.
All current booth contracts will be carried over to the May 2022 edition of the show.
With usually close to 400 exhibitors and more than 6,000 attendees from throughout Canada and the United States, the show decided to move the date due to current restrictions still in place with travel.
The 2022 event is expected to include a networking reception, educational seminars, and the MEET Innovation Awards—all part of the normal show setup.
