For Immediate Release 11:44 Friday March 13, 2020
Our health comes first.
Given all that has transpired recently, it is evident that postponing the eMERGE EcoMarket is in the best interest of attendees, exhibitors and the general public.
The world is showing us that we can take aggressive action to mitigate a clear and present danger. As we jointly wrestle corona virus to the ground, we need to remember to take the same approach to fight climate change.
We would like to thank all of our exhibitors, sponsors and volunteers for their continued support.
(even though the EcoMarket has been postponed)
To help fight our current crisis we want to encourage you to do all the right stuff.
Our 'Lucky 13th' EcoMarket was supposed to be a Shake Free event. But you can do the right thing anyway.
Show us how you can greet each other without shaking hands, hugging, kissing - you get it.
There are many ways to do this and we encourage you to have fun by inventing shake free ways to greet each other.
Did we encourage you to wash your hands regularly? Your mother would be proud.
