Important trade show announcement

Earlier this summer we were excited to announce that we’d be hosting a trade show in Manchester, New Hampshire on Thursday, September 16th. At the time of the announcement, COVID infection rates were headed in the right direction.


A couple of months have now passed, and COVID infection rates are on the rise. The Delta variant is of particular concern given its higher transmission rate.


We have given a great deal of thought to the trade show and the 600-800 people we expected to join us next week. We’ve heard from some vendor partners who are no longer able to participate due to their company guidelines. We’ve thought about precautionary measures we could take to maximize the safety of our customers, our people and our vendor partners…as well as the families we go home to. Unfortunately, there is no risk-free solution nor a solution that would allow us to host an event that meets our high standards.


It’s for these reasons that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our trade show scheduled for September 16th.


We appreciate that you planned to join us next week. We know that you, like us, are eager to get back to “normal,” and that this will be a disappointment to many. We look forward to the time when we can resume all the regular events and activities of our work lives.


Please reach out with any questions.


Thank you,


The Granite Group
