Home and Leisure Trade Show cancelled by Cold Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce

The Cold Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced the cancellation of the 28th Annual Home and Leisure Trade Show scheduled for April 3-5, 2020.

“This decision did not come lightly as we are aware of the financial implications it will have on our suppliers, exhibitors and our own Chamber operating budget,” the Cold Lake Regional Chamber of Commerce said in a press release.

“However, in light of the direction announced on March 12th, 2020, from Alberta Health Services, public health and safety is of the utmost importance.

“These precautionary measures have, unfortunately, led to the cancellation of our event.

“Chamber of Commerce staff will contact those exhibitors who have already paid for their booth space and provide a full refund.

“We ask for your patience while we work through this situation.”
