Dear SIA Members and Exhibitors
The SIA Board have been closely monitoring and considering the current situation and the impact of the Covid‐19 pandemic on the upcoming 2021 SIA Trade Show.
With the current lockdowns through New South Wales, ACT and Greater Melbourne along with various border closures, the SIA Board has made the very difficult decision to cancel the 2021 SIA Trade Show scheduled for Canberra in October.
It is incredibly disappointing to take this action however it has become clear that it will simply not be possible to hold a face-to-face event of our size in the coming months.
In the meantime the SIA Office will be putting together a digital catalogue accessible for retail buyers enabling them to make contact with exhibitors for the products that they are seeking. The SIA office will be in contact soon to start this process.
We look forward to the time when safe to do so when we can come together face to face as an industry.
The SIA remain committed to supporting our members during these challenging times. We ask that you contact our office with any thoughts, concerns or inquiries, as remaining connected and helping each other through the next 12 months is vital.
