Viva Fresh Expo in Texas will be postponed or canceled

Concerns about COVID-19 are escalating and the Texas International Produce Association (TIPA) and the Viva Fresh Steering Committee have decided not to move forward with the Viva Fresh Expo, scheduled April 29-May 2.

“Because the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, staff and volunteers are our number one priority, we will not be moving forward with the Viva Fresh Expo,” according to a statement on TIPA’s website www.vivafreshexpo.com. “We are reviewing options for either postponement or cancellation and we’ll keep you updated on our progress.”

TIPA released the following statement:

“The Texas International Produce Association (TIPA) and the Viva Fresh Steering Committee have been keeping a close watch on the evolving coronavirus situation.

Because the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, staff and volunteers are our number one priority, we will not be moving forward with the Viva Fresh Expo as scheduled on April 29-May 2. We are reviewing options for either postponement or cancellation and we’ll keep you updated on our progress.

In the meantime, our valued sponsors, exhibitors and paid attendees have the option to receive full credit that can be applied to the 2021 Viva Fresh Expo. If you would like a refund, TIPA will provide an 80% refund (less Paypal fees for payments made by card).  Your support in taking advantage of the credit option will go a long way in ensuring our ability to continue to deliver the exceptional trade show experience that the Viva Fresh Expo has become known for.   For more information, contact Lilly Garcia at [email protected] or via phone at (956) 581-8632.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as we navigate through this unprecedented situation.”
