The show was scheduled at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center for April 9 through April 18, a month later than usual. Now it’ll be postponed to October 2021. The dates will be announced later this spring.
It comes after Gov. Tom Wolf eased gathering restrictions to allow 15% maximum occupancy indoor and 20% outdoor, regardless of a venue’s size.
