A number of conferences, conventions, trade shows, and other events regularly attended by professionals in the attractions and themed entertainment have either been canceled, postponed, or extended deadlines due to COVID-19. In some cases this is due to local public healthcare concerns, while in others the decision was based on international travel restrictions impacting attendance.
