The postponement of CheeseExpo to April 6-8, 2021, and its return to the Wisconsin Center in downtown Milwaukee, WI, means that WCMA intends to present the same record-setting exhibit floor to our attendees when we reconvene.
WCMA recognizes, however, that this postponement represents a unique situation for CheeseExpo hosts and our exhibitor partners. Together, we have a key guidepost in our Exhibitor Contract (Liability, p.3) noting: “Cancellation of the CheeseExpo at any time will not subject the Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association to any damages or other liability of any kind. However, the exhibitor will be reimbursed pro rata for any prepaid exhibit space fees paid.” WCMA will honor this commitment to reimburse exhibit space fees paid, if the exhibitor wishes to cancel their booth at CheeseExpo 2021.
But consider this opportunity: In the coming weeks, WCMA staff will work with exhibitors to retain their booth position. To lock in your position on the exhibit floor, WCMA can retain your fees paid and honor the 2020 booth rates in 2021. If we agree together to forward your payment and position to the 2021 exhibit floor, you are good to go for CheeseExpo 2021.
