Not unexpectedly, the annual World Waterpark Association (WWA) 40th Annual Symposium & Trade Show, scheduled for October 6 through 9 in Las Vegas, has been canceled because of COVID-19. It will be replaced by a virtual show.
According to Damien Latham, Chair, WWA Board of Directors, and Rick Root, WWA President, “Based on current public health advisories and travel restrictions around the world, including the State of Nevada which currently bans gatherings of more than 50 people, it is not possible for us to move ahead with this year’s WWA Show in Las Vegas. Cancelling the in-person portion of our 40th anniversary show was not what we had hoped for, but as we have so many times this year, we will continue to adapt to challenges as they arise. Going forward, we’ll shift our attention to delivering a virtual show experience that will honor our strong commitment to providing the best educational and networking opportunities available to you as a water leisure professional. Look for more details coming soon about our WWA40 virtual experience.”
In 2021, the WWA’s 41st Annual Symposium & Trade Show is scheduled to be held October 19 through 22 in San Antonio, Texas.
