After the Covid-19 pandemic forced the cancelation of all the Fred Hall Shows in 2021, the only scheduled show for 2022 was set for March 2-6 in Long Beach, but today the show was officially canceled. Here’s the brief statement that appeared on the show’s website:
“Owing to the ongoing pandemic caused by Covid-19 and the local governmental protocols requiring masks, proof of vaccination and or at the door testing, we are not able to move forward with the Fred Hall Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. We are truly sorry about this last-minute development, but we were unfortunately led to believe that these types of government regulations would have been sufficiently lifted or relaxed by now. Such is not the case, and thus we cannot produce the kind of high-quality show that is expected by our exhibitors and the attending public under the current government restrictions. Again, we are truly sorry and exhibitor refunds will be available.”
A message was left with show owner Bart Hall, son of founder Fred Hall, so we’ll update with any further comments.
