Lodestone Prioritizes Safety Over Springtime
Lodestone Events, producers of the Overland Expo event series, announced Overland Expo West 2021 postponed dates. They decided to delay the flagship event usually held in mid-May. Typically the first in the Overland Expo event series, Overland Expo West 2021, held in Flagstaff, AZ, has moved dates to September 24-26, 2021. Lodestone made the decision to push back to ensure the health and safety of fans, exhibitors, staff and surrounding community in Flagstaff.
“Overland Expo West is our flagship and the event that started it all. After conversations with the host venue and local health officials, we collectively decided to postpone until late summer out of an abundance of caution,” said Lodestone Events Marketing VP Jessica Kirchner. “We’ll miss Flagstaff’s traditional springtime gathering. However, we are excited to safely congregate with the overland community at Ft. Tuthill in September.”
COVID-19 Safety Protocols Implemented
To ensure the health and safety of attendees at upcoming events, Overland Expo released a set of COVID-19 Safety Procedures. These include pre-entry screening, mandatory wearing of masks, touchless transactions, and social distancing. Those choosing to attend any Overland Expo in 2021 are encouraged to review the COVID-19 health and safety protocols.
Beginning in January, booth space and tickets go on sale for the event series. Overland Expo West should return to its traditional date in May in 2022, according to event organizers. Current ticket holders who are unable to attend the Overland Expo West 2021 postponed dates in September may request a transfer to another Overland Expo event in 2021 or get a refund.
