Long Beach, Calif. – May 13, 2020 – The Long Beach Expo, leading coin, currency, stamp and sports collectible show on the West Coast, today announced it has canceled its June 2020 expo due to the ongoing COVID-19 health pandemic and in compliance with Governor Gavin Newsom’s March 12, 2020 Executive Order to cancel all large gatherings. The Long Beach Expo plans to return to the Long Beach Convention Center, September 17-19, 2020.
