IHRSA Announces New Dates and Location for IHRSA 2021
IHRSA announced on October 1 that the Annual IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show will take place on September 20 to 22, in Los Angeles, California — taking place exactly 40 years to the month of IHRSA’s founding in September 1981.
The 2021 show will mark the fourth time the Annual IHRSA International Convention & Trade Show will visit Los Angeles.
According to a press release, the association began exploring options for rescheduling the event this summer after ongoing implications from COVID-19. After consulting the IHRSA Board of Directors, its club and supplier membership, and key industry stakeholders, September 2021 was determined to be the best possible event location and timeframe.
“The consensus we heard is there is too much uncertainty right now to commit to a large in-person event in March,” said Brent Darden, the interim president and CEO of IHRSA. “Companies are still managing their way through this crisis. The industry will be in a much stronger position in the fall of 2021 to come together for the first major in-person event since the crisis began.”
IHRSA 2021 was originally scheduled to occur in March at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada.
