We are entering the second month of what has now become a global pandemic. The coronavirus (COVID-19) has taken an aggressive path in which the consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry as we know it has had to come to a screeching halt. All over the world, people are experiencing their own version of quarantine, some cities going as far as total lockdowns, and sheltering in place. The federal government is recommending that gatherings of 10 or more people must be canceled in an effort to encourage social distancing and help reduce the rate of new exposure to the virus. 

The CPG industry has seen quite a few canceled events, one of the biggest being Expo West which was supposed to take place in Anaheim, CA earlier this month. Below is a list of industry events that have either been canceled, postponed or are still scheduled to happen.
