Prior to the show, Angelo Gangone, AWFS® Executive Vice President went on to state, “We took many factors into consideration this year. Our pre-registration has been steadily tracking ahead of 2019 to this point, and with the incredible progress the U.S. has made with this pandemic, we are confident in moving forward as scheduled. People miss the social interaction that comes from conducting business face-to-face, something that we took for granted prior to last year. We invite everyone to come and join us in celebrating the reopening of our industry and our country this July 20th through the 23rd.”
