ShowSpan, Inc., the producer of many consumer shows in the midwest, has announced the cancellation of the rest of its 2021 “Show Season” at DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.
Shows cancelled for 2021 include:
- West Michigan Home and Garden Show
- Ultimate Sport Show
- Cottage & Lakefront Living Show
- Grand Rapids Boat Show
- Michigan International Auto Show
- Grand Rapids Remodeling and New Homes Show
- Grand Rapids Camper, Travel and RV Show
- West Michigan Golf Show
- International Wine, Beer & Food Festival
Additionally, Kent County, Spectrum Health and Mercy Health, in collaboration with Vaccinate West Michigan, coordinated and opened “The West Michigan Vaccine Clinic” in DeVos Place. ShowSpan’s decision to cancel the 2021 show season will allow the clinic maximum space in the convention center.
“In these immensely challenging days we all have had to sacrifice for the common good,” says John Loeks, owner of ShowSpan. “We will certainly step back to allow the county to vaccinate as many people as possible, as quickly as possible.”
A decision on ShowSpan’s remaining schedule of 2021 consumer shows in Novi and Lansing, Michigan has not yet been made.
