Northeast PEZ Convention 2020-Cancelled
Our convention attendees safety, well being and happiness is very important to us. We have been in close contact with our hotel management team, at the Sheraton Stamford Hotel. They assured us that they are following all of the health and safety guidelines on top of their already high standards to keep the hotel clean and safe for all of our guests. We also have been keeping a very close eye on the City of Stamford, the State of Connecticut Office of Tourism and the State of Connecticut Governor for the latest updates. We must be proactive to ensure health of our PEZ collecting friends traveling far and near. We want to see everyone come back year after year as we have for the past twenty plus years. We all look forward to this yearly event and we do not want to disappoint anyone. Sadly, the Governor of the State of Connecticut signed an executive order prohibiting large events like ours. With the current status of the virus we feel the safest thing for everyone is to cancel the Northeast PEZ Convention for 2020 and bring it back bigger and better in 2021.
We will be in contact with those that are registered about this year’s VERY SPECIAL “PEZ Convention Exclusive” dispensers, pins & goodies that we have for the 2020 convention. Again, Mary and I are heartbroken and very sad about this. We are making this very tough decision so everyone stays healthy. We will see you in Connecticut in 2021.
