EDS can­cels the 2020 EDS Lead­er­ship Sum­mit, sched­uled for May 11 – 15 in Las Vegas.

Due to the ongo­ing Covid-19 out­break, the elec­tron­ics com­po­nents industry’s pre­mier event will next take place in 2021.

The Elec­tron­ic Dis­trib­u­tors Sum­mit (EDS) board of direc­tors has announced today that its 2020 EDS Lead­er­ship Sum­mit, sched­uled to be held at the Mirage Resort in Las Vegas May 11 – 15, has been can­celled due to the rapid­ly evolv­ing out­break of the nov­el coro­n­avirus (COVID-19). The next EDS will be held May 10 – 14, 2021, in Las Vegas at The Mirage Resort.

Con­sid­ered the pre­mier annu­al event for the inter­na­tion­al elec­tron­ics com­po­nents indus­try, EDS draws over 4,000 exec­u­tives from world’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers, dis­trib­u­tors and sales rep­re­sen­ta­tives. EDS is joint­ly spon­sored by three major indus­try orga­ni­za­tions: the Elec­tron­ics Com­po­nents Indus­try Asso­ci­a­tion (ECIA), the Elec­tron­ics Rep­re­sen­ta­tives Asso­ci­a­tion (ERA) and the Glob­al Elec­tron­ic Dis­trib­u­tors Asso­ci­a­tion (GEDA).

We’ve all been watch­ing the fast-mov­ing devel­op­ments of the COVID-19 pan­dem­ic and we decid­ed to be proac­tive for obvi­ous rea­sons,” said EDS board mem­ber Robert Logan. The most impor­tant aspect of this deci­sion is the health and well-being of our fel­low indus­try cit­i­zens. To that end, the board along with our spon­sor­ing asso­ci­a­tions have decid­ed to can­cel EDS 2020.”

EDS will auto­mat­i­cal­ly refund indi­vid­ual reg­is­tra­tions and reg­is­tra­tions for the SPARK Pro­fes­sion­al Devel­op­ment Pro­gram. Spon­sors and com­pa­nies that have reserved meet­ing spaces can either request a full refund or apply their fees to the 2021 EDS. Mirage room reser­va­tions made direct­ly with the Mirage with­in the EDS room block will be auto­mat­i­cal­ly can­celled and the first-night deposit will be cred­it­ed back.
