It's hard to believe 2020 is officially coming to an end. For many people, they probably thought this would never come!
Throughout everything, this year has been dominated by one theme: the pandemic. Beginning in mid-March, businesses and households nationwide were thrusted into unexpected territory.
It's easy to focus on the negative, but we can't forget the most important thing to come out of this year: a sense of community. Without an excellent support system, this year would have been nearly impossible.
We want to thank our members, partners, exhibitors, and volunteers for supporting us as we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 show (the first time in the show's 60-year run!) due to concerns of COVID-19.
As planning for 2021 continues, we look forward to seeing everyone healthy and safe at the Western State Bank Expo Center, March 18-20! WKMA will be doing our part by increasing hand sanitizer and handwashing stations throughout show grounds and, if required by the CDC, spacing our exhibitors to the recommended safe distance, among other safety procedures.
2020 has certainly been a challenging year and as it thankfully comes to an end, we can't help but be excited for what comes next!
Even though we expect the pandemic to be with us for some time, the world continues to turn and there is an overall sense the light at the end of the tunnel is quickly approaching.
