Here in Chicago they have already cancelled the Ace Hardware Show which brings in more than 14,ooo people to the city.
It becomes the third event scheduled for McCormick Place that has been scrapped over fears of the coronavirus.

On Monday, the International Housewares Association canceled its annual trade-only event, The Inspired Home Show, which was scheduled for March 14-17 and expected to bring $77 million in spending to Chicago, income for hotels, restaurants, transportation services and entertainment venues. Oracle on Wednesday dropped its conference, Modern Business Experience, which was expected to draw 5,500 people.

The Ace event was estimated to be responsible for 16,000 hotel room nights that would have been used during the show, said McCormick Place spokeswoman Cynthia McCafferty. As more events cancel in Chicago, it will deal a blow to the city’s tourism.

United Airlines became the first U.S. airline on Wednesday to cut both domestic and international flights as companies restrict travel to employees and other conventions across the country cancel shows in an attempt to protect workers’ safety and health.

Happy Travels
