The Globe cancels plans for Women's Expo
An event may be considered for next fall.
WORTHINGTON — After much thought and consideration, The Globe has decided to postpone its plans to host the Women’s Expo in late March.
The decision was made in partnership with the event’s two major sponsors — Avera Medical Group Worthington and Sanford Worthington. Recent spikes in COVID-19 cases led to the decision.
At this time, The Globe is considering the option to host a Women’s Expo in the autumn.
“We were so excited to start our planning process for this spring’s Women’s Expo, but after a discussion with both Avera and Sanford, we decided it was best to reassess this summer for the possibility of a fall event,” shared Globe Publisher Joni Harms.
“With previous events having up to 1,000 people in attendance, we couldn’t take the risk of becoming a super spreader,” she added. “The community's safety and wellbeing are our No. 1 priority, just as it is for Avera and Sanford. We also don’t want to add to the strain on employees, who may already be strained in the healthcare sector.
“We are confident we will be able to bring this event back in person, we’re just not sure when that will happen,” Harms said.
