Kosherfest 2020 Postponed Due to COVID: New Dates of Events to be Announced

Portland ME…The ongoing restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic has prompted exhibitors and buyers to recommend a postponement of Kosherfest 2020 which was scheduled for November 11-12, 2020. Diversified Business Communications and Lubicom Business Consulting, co-producers of Kosherfest, are analyzing the results of a survey sent to several thousand exhibitors and buyers. Once completed, a new date will be announced. Also, under consideration are virtual events such as the New Product Competition. Kosherfest officials are in consultation with key officials of the food industry to determine the best dates for the show in 2021. The decision to postpone this year’s Kosherfest came as the pandemic continues in many countries throughout the world. Countries in Europe, South America and Israel are under travel restrictions which is likely to continue for the balance of 2020. Many companies in the US are also restricting travel, which is one of the main reasons Kosherfest 2020 is being postponed. “Kosherfest is an international show with hundreds of visitors from all parts of the world,” said a Kosherfest spokesperson. “If our attendees cannot travel, we obviously have to consider alternate dates.”
