World Tea Conference + Expo postponed to October 2020

Questex, the parent company of World Tea Conference + Expo, has announced it has been forced to postpone the event due to the Covid-19 epidemic.

Originally scheduled to run from 8-11 June 2020, World Tea Conference + Expo has been rescheduled to 15-18 October 2020, at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado.

“We are facing an unprecedented health situation,” said Paul Miller, CEO of Questex.

“The Federal government has asked that no more than 10 people gather in one place due to Covid-19, and the Governor of Colorado has recommended the cancellation of all public gatherings of more than 250 people. Due to the Covid-19 circumstances, we are forced to postpone World Tea Conference + Expo.

“We recognize the impact that the postponement has on the tea community. Our exhibitors, sponsors and speakers put in an enormous amount of work preparing for the event. This will be the first time in 18 years the event has been forced to postpone. However, the health and safety of the tea community, and the broader community, is vitally important and it makes the event postponement unavoidable.”
