A note from our team about the 2020 Buying Show:
To our vendor partners
The health and safety of our customers, vendors, staff and community are AFCO’s first priority. Our team has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and due to ongoing developments pertaining to public health, we have decided to follow safety practices urged by the Governor, the Mayor of Spokane, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Washington State Department of Health. It is with the greatest of caution that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our AFCO buying show this year.
While we are very disappointed to have to make this decision, we feel it is our responsibility to take this step to ensure the safety and wellbeing of you, our customers, and our staff.
At this stage we are calling it a 2020 buying show cancellation due to the uncertainty of the length of time it will actually take to control COVID-19. As updates are received we will react accordingly.
While we anticipate costs associated with cancellations we will be refunding our vendors who have already submitted payment at 100%. Please let us know how you would like to see that come back to you either in the form of a check or credit memo to use against future bill backs etc…. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions.
AFCO will continue to operate our warehouse/delivery and mill operations to support our customers during this very uncertain time. We take our responsibility as an “essential” supplier very seriously and will continue to do everything that we can to provide best-in-class service during this difficult time.
The AFCO Buying Show is a great chance to interact one-on-one with all our customers, as well as build new relationships for the future.
Here’s why other vendors love attending the AFCO Buying Show each year:
