The National continues to get questions and hear rumors about the upcoming 41st National scheduled for July 28-August 1, 2021 at the Donald E Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. We are at the mercy of the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) which has published metrics describing when large conventions may be held in the state. We know that attendees and exhibitors are waiting to make arrangements for travel and hotels for the National. Based upon this we will continue to follow the IDPH guidelines and make a decision on the July dates on or around June 1, 2021. Should the National be postponed we are currently looking at October dates as a backup. Exhibitors and attendees will have the choice of a rolling over booth deposits/ticket revenue to the postponed show or may request a refund.
