If any of you were planning to make your way over to Schaumburg, IL for the annual APONA high-end audio show, we were notified today that it has been postponed from April 17th – 19th to August 7th – 9th due to fears over coronavirus. Apparently the decision was made following an “outpouring of feedback from the AXPONA community over the last 72 hours.”

A note from the founder and CEO of JD Events is below:

Dear AXPONA Community,

AXPONA has been rescheduled from April 17-19 to August 7-9, 2020 out of concern for the health and safety
of all participants due to the growing coronavirus situation. This decision was made following an outpouring of
feedback from the AXPONA community over the last 72 hours.

The three most consistent themes we heard were, 1) fears of attending public events will increase in March
and April, 2) AXPONA should still be held in 2020, and 3) reschedule later this year if possible. Although the
Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel is booked solid all year, they offered us a week in August that will
accommodate all of AXPONA’s space needs. So we secured it.

We rescheduled out of an abundance of caution during this unpredictable time to provide the best opportunity
for a well attended event and to ensure the best AXPONA experience for all show goers in 2020. We will
contact all exhibitors and attendees directly later this week as we work through the details of the move.

Our sole priority today is to communicate this news immediately so everyone can adjust their plans
accordingly. We thank you for your understanding and we apologize for any inconvenience.

We look forward to seeing you all at AXPONA in August!

Sincerely,

Joel A.Davis
Founder & CEO, JD Events
