As you may know, we unfortunately had to cancel AVX 2020 last October because of the pandemic, but we are very excited about AVX 2021! We moved the event to November to allow for enough time for vaccines to take effect and trade shows to resume.
The health and well-being of our community remains our foremost priority. We are applying health and safety standards, based on local public health guidance and venue protocols, to support a safe and comfortable show experience.
