The 2021 NAFA Institute & Expo (I&E) has been rescheduled to take place Aug. 30 – Sept. 1, 2021, and will be held in Pittsburgh, Penn., at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center.
“In light of continued concerns, it doesn’t look very promising to host a large gathering in early 2021, and postponing I&E until August ensures more time to bring the industry together, “ said NAFA President Patti Earley, CAFM. “We thank everyone for the continued support and feedback as the industry is eager to come together and connect with peers.”
After consulting with the city of Pittsburgh, the convention center and hotels, as well as exhibitors and members, the decision was made to postpone the event to August providing organizations and attendees more time to plan, evaluate budgets and resources, and determine staff travel for next year.
“NAFA continues to evaluate current conditions while planning to host a productive and safe in-person event in 2021,” the Association announced.
Earlier this year, the NAFA 2020 I&E was hosted in a virtual format online from Sept. 14 - 17, 2020.
