PGA of Alberta Buying Show & Awards Banquet Cancelled

Dear Members, Partners and Vendors,

After much review and consideration from our Board of Directors, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 edition of our Buying Show hosted in Calgary in October. Pressure on our healthcare system, current COVID-19 numbers, and the Government of Alberta declaring a state of public health emergency are some of the reasons behind the decision to cancel. The Association does not want to put anyone’s health at risk by attending the Show and had to make the decision to postpone to 2022.

In addition to the Buying Show, the Awards Banquets has been cancelled. The Association will still go forth with the Awards Program this year in a similar format to last year.  The Awards Program is an integral aspect of the Association as it’s important to recognize and celebrate the successes of our hard-working members and industry reps. Finalists for this year’s awards will be announced next week.

Thank you for your continued support of our Buying Show and for your understanding of this difficult decision. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes and hope to see everyone next year.

Shawn Lavoie,
Buying Show Chairman
