The longtime producer of the Northeast Fishing & Hunting Show today announced the cancellation of its 23rd annual event in response to increasing public health concerns about the Coronavirus COVID-19.
Connecticut’s largest fishing and hunting show was scheduled to take place March 20-22 at the Connecticut Convention Center in Hartford. There are no plans to reschedule the event that is always held just before the start of the spring fishing season.
“This is the first time in the history of this family event that we have cancelled even one day,” said Kristie Gonsalves, president of North East Expos, Inc. and a past president of the National Association of Consumer Show Producers. “But as a responsible show producer, it is my job to ensure the safest and best environment for my exhibitors and the tens of thousands of attendees who come every year. I express my sincere appreciation to all the exhibitors, expert speakers, vendors and volunteers from across Connecticut and beyond who have worked so hard to prepare for this year’s consumer show.”
