Dear Friends,

I hope this message finds you and your family healthy and safe. This has been an incredibly challenging few weeks for many businesses and many families in our country and the whole world, due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus.

Your health and well-being matter most.

On March 13th and after we consulted with our sponsors and exhibitors, the backbone of the Hermes Expo, we announced that we would be postponing all Hermes Expo events that were to take place April 2-9th in Chicago, Washington, DC, Philadelphia, and New York due to the Coronavirus outbreak. It is imperative that during this crucial time we follow the recommendations of our public health officials to increase the safety of the public and ourselves. We appreciate your cooperation and will maintain constant updates regarding the rescheduling of the Hermes Expo events. We are currently speculating at hosting the 29th Hermes Expo events at the end of September.

We will continue to monitor the situation very closely and will make an official announcement as soon as more information is available. We hope that you will join us!

In the meantime, I would like to encourage all of you to stay home and stay positive. Together, we will overcome this challenge. Together, we will build a better and brighter future for us all.

I would like to thank all of our brave heroes that are working at the frontlines of this devastating virus such as our healthcare professionals, grocery store employees, delivery workers, transit workers, mail carriers, take-out cooks, teachers and everyone who is not able to work from home. Also, if you can, please support small businesses that are fighting to stay afloat.

Lastly, I would like to wish all of you a healthy, safe and Happy Easter Season. Καλό Πάσχα!

Καλή Ανάσταση! Ευχόμαστε το φως της Ανάστασης να χαρίσει ελπίδα και να φέρει γαλήνη.

Thank you,

Paul Kotrotsios

Founder & President | Hermes Expo
