Food Writing Conference Postponed in Response to Coronavirus
The IACP meeting in Pittsburgh will now take place in October.
International Association of Culinary Professionals will postpone its Pittsburgh conference, which was meant to take place at the end of March.
“At IACP, the health of our speakers, families, and communities is paramount to us. We have been following news reports and updates from the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control closely. As the virulent coronavirus continues to spread, including today in Pennsylvania—like Expo West, the International Housewares Show and the International Food Summit—we have decided today to postpone the International Association of Culinary Professionals annual conference to Tuesday night through Thursday, October 13-15, 2020,” the organization writes in a press release.
The decision was made late last week in order to allow attendees to have enough time to change their travel plans.
The organization will still move forward with its award ceremony, but that event will take place in New York City (Pittsburgh Magazine is a finalist Best Food Section Of A City Magazine).
