ISRI 2020 has been cancelled


The Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI) has canceled its ISRI 2020 convention, which had been scheduled for 27 to 30 April at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

ISRI President Robin Wiener informed, that “in light of government restrictions on large gatherings and recommendations from global health organizations, ISRI has made the difficult decision to cancel ISRI2020, scheduled for late April in Las Vegas. Rescheduling, or even relocating, this flagship event proved simply impossible, which means that ISRI will be looking ahead to ISRI2021 in San Diego as the next large-scale annual convention and exhibition for our industry.” 

She adds, that “ISRI is already working on providing additional programming to help members deal with the economic, and health and safety concerns surround the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, ISRI will be virtually offering many of the same educational programs that were to be offered at the convention.”
