The USA CBD Expo Team is actively monitoring updates to the coronavirus situation (abbreviated “COVID-19”). We will continue to remain in contact with the proper authorities and organizations to ensure that we maintain an educated perspective when making event-related decisions.
As always, our top priority is to keep all of our attendees and vendors safe at our shows. In the interest of this, we have decided to move our Atlanta event to a later date. It now will be held at the same venue, Georgia World Congress Center, from February 5-7, 2021. Additionally, our Connecticut show has been postponed indefinitely, and USA CBD Expo Chicago will be our next event, scheduled for December 11-13, 2020.
We will be taking the following precautionary measures at our events:
- Encouraging social distancing measures and use of PPE like masks, gloves, etc.
- Providing additional sanitation stations
- Ensuring staff follow hygienic protocol
- Frequent cleaning and disinfection services
In addition, McCormick Place, the venue for our Chicago event, has announced additional security and health measures. These include creating a comprehensive campus-wide safety plan, joining a city-wide coalition of businesses committed to safe hospitality, along with pursuing the GBAC STAR™, the gold standard for facilities prepared for disease prevention. Please view how each of our respective venues are addressing COVID-19 by using the links below.

Our team is committed to the highest standard of safety at our events. Please listen to the relevant public health authorities on the local, state and national level about matters related to COVID-19, and use this knowledge to inform your decisions.
We will keep you informed and up to date on any and all future developments.
