After much consideration and thought, the National Swine Registry has made the challenging but necessary decision to cancel The Exposition scheduled for June 7-13, 2020 in Indianapolis, Indiana. The NSR Summer Type Conference and NJSA National Junior Show will be held July 6-11, 2020 in Des Moines, Iowa.
Association staff know this greatly effects our members, junior exhibitors, stakeholders, and supporters. The associations are committed to helping prevent the spread of this virus by taking prudent steps to protect our exhibitors, their families, and sponsors, as well as the community at large.
Here is some critical information for all exhibitors to know:
Given the unprecedented times and uncertainty, please be patient and understanding as staff manage the proper channels and procedures to conduct a live event. We know the constant changes regarding COVID-19 are difficult to navigate. Rest assured that association staff are working diligently to create contingency plans and are in constant communication with the necessary individuals regarding future events. If any updates do arise, NSR, CPS, ABA, NJSA, and Team Purebred membership will be informed as soon as possible.
Finally, the associations ask that our industry be understanding and empathetic to everyone involved. This global pandemic effects everyone, and decisions are being made in the best interests of our industry and members, but also with the emphasis of social responsibility and ownership to our global community.
While none of us know what the new normal will be, we can promise that we will be better together through this difficult circumstance. We are working towards making this event the best of its kind, and the ultimate opportunity to highlight our youth exhibitors’ perseverance and work ethic, as well as, our breeders’ dedication to purebred swine genetics.
