Pittsburgh Business Show to be Postponed due to COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation

Dear Pittsburgh Business Show exhibitors, sponsors, speakers, attendees and our many supporters,

In a city that boasts six Super Bowl victories, a slew of “most livable” city rankings, in a region that comes together time and time again to support each other and our communities, in times of winning or losing, through catastrophe and good fortune, Pittsburgh knows what it takes to pull together to bring home the championship or hang on and support each other year after year.

We celebrate the Pittsburgh area businesses in our area for demonstrating the exceptional support that they offer to their communities, the exciting things they are doing to help businesses grow and the partnerships they have created to bring the 10 counties in our region together to grow the economy. I know that we will come together to support each other during this seemingly trying time.

Thank you for being patient while I have been working to evaluate the Coronavirus situation and the timing of our scheduled event on May 5th, 2020. I have spent the past week communicating and working the with numerous organizations involved with the show including:

  • David L. Lawrence Convention Center
  • Stetson Convention Services
  • Higher Images
  • Encore Event Design
  • Pittsburgh North Regional Chamber of Commerce
  • Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
  • Millenia Multimedia
  • Veteran’s Place of Washington Boulevard

I have consulted with individuals and organizations supporting our event such as our speakers and sponsors including the Diversity and Inclusion Certification Course, Speed Networking Event, additional workshops hosted by experts in their industry and the Job Fair hosted by Verteran’s Place of Washington Boulevard.

At this time, I have concluded that in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, The Pittsburgh Business Show will be postponed due to constraints from speakers, sponsors, organizations and the recommendations from the CDC and the PA Governor’s Office and the uncertainty in the weeks to come.

It is in the Pittsburgh Business Communities best interest to err on the side of caution for the event so that we can continue to be an integral piece of the growth and foundation of the Pittsburgh business landscape. Our vision is to help build partnerships, bring professionals together for business networking, and create opportunities for new and existing businesses.

I would like to personally thank each and every one of you for your continued support.

For the past 4 years, the Pittsburgh Business Show has been a place for businesses to come together to Connect, Grow and be Educated and we will continue to come together this year on November 19th 2020 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.

I look forward to the future and pray for the health and safety of our entire community.

Together… WE Can Make Pittsburgh Businesses Stronger.

Linda Jo Thornberg
President
