Breakbulk Americas has been rescheduled for November 3-5, 2020 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston. The new dates are due to the move of Breakbulk Europe from its time slot in late May to the end of September.
“We needed to move these two events as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented crisis that has affected everyone,” Nick Davison, Portfolio Director for Breakbulk and CWEIME events, Hyve Group said. “Breakbulk Americas was the last piece of the puzzle to fall into place so we could deliver a full suite of Breakbulk events this year. “
“Our aim was to minimize disruption and make it as easy as possible for our customers to participate in both Breakbulk Europe and Breakbulk Americas under safe conditions.”
Breakbulk Americas will now be held in Halls A and B at the north end of the GRB Convention Center. Revised hotel accommodations for the new dates will be released shortly.
“Our team is grateful for the assistance from Visit Houston in helping us to find a solution,” Jamie Reesby, Event Director for Breakbulk Americas said. “It’s an inspiring example of our community collaborating in the throes of a crisis to keep this event, a mainstay of the project cargo and breakbulk industry, on track. I’m looking forward to seeing the industry come together as we enter the fourth decade of Breakbulk Americas.”
