The Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association (WCMA) and the Center for Dairy Research said that that the 2020 CheeseExpo, which was set to occur on April 14-16 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee, has been postponed until April 6-8, 2021. The organizations issued the following statement regarding the event’s rescheduling:
“With the goal of protecting the health and well-being of our friends and partners in the dairy industry, being cognizant of the welfare of all citizens in the long tradition of our ‘safety-first’ industry, and delivering an education event that everyone in industry will be able to attend, Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association and Center for Dairy Research announce the postponement of CheeseExpo and its new scheduled dates of April 6-8, 2021 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee.
“The decision to postpone CheeseExpo was not made lightly and reflects our contact with dozens of dairy processing companies and industry suppliers and exhibitors across the U.S. The dairy industry is prudently taking precautions to limit the spread of COVID-19, including reducing travel and face-to-face meetings. At the same time, the State of Wisconsin has recommended that all nonessential gatherings of 250 or more people be cancelled or postponed.
“The dairy industry is a leader in the safety of its products and in its care and concern for customers and employees. This decision regarding CheeseExpo is intended to match these proactive industry standards and provide clarity in a timely fashion to reduce attendee and exhibitor costs associated with the postponed event. CheeseExpo, the dynamic new trade exposition and seminars for the dairy processing industry, will deliver its record-setting exposition and more seminar tracks than ever before at its new unveiling, April 6-8, 2021.”
