2020 CFSEI Expo is Canceled Due to Concerns Related to COVID-19

March 19, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC - The Cold-Formed Steel Engineers Institute (CFSEI) has canceled the 2020 CFSEI Expo due to concerns related to the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. CFSEI issued this announcement:

On behalf of the American Iron and Steel Institute (AISI) and the CFSEI Executive Committee, the decision has been made to cancel the 2020 CFSEI Expo scheduled for May 19-20 in Tampa, Florida due to concerns related to the coronavirus (COVID-19). 

The decision was made in the best interests of all attendees and staff. We want to provide a quality event with appropriate educational and networking opportunities, and this is not possible in the current environment.

We will try to reschedule the CFSEI Expo later this year or in early 2021. We apologize for the inconvenience, but realize this is the best course to follow for the benefit of all involved. CFSEI was excited about delivering an event with strong educational experiences. We will now shift our focus to explore opportunities to deliver this information using online tools and methods.

Attendees who have already registered for the Expo will receive a refund from CFSEI in the next few days. If you have made travel reservations, please cancel them immediately with the respective companies. We will contact you at a later time with information on rescheduling the event.

Thank you for your continued interest in the CFSEI Expo.
