(Santa Ana, California) – March 19, 2021 – The Long Beach Expo scheduled for June 17-19, 2021, has been canceled. The triannual Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp & Sports Collectible Show will not be occurring in June as had been scheduled due to an abundance of caution as the COVID-19 pandemic continues.
The announcement comes amid a flurry of other coin show cancelations over the past 13 months as the pandemic continues leading to tens of thousands of new COVID-19 cases in Southern California on a weekly basis. Hope continues building that COVID-19 vaccinations and other mitigation efforts will soon lead to the reintroduction of coin shows and other major events. However, Long Beach Expo convention officials have determined that canceling the June show, which was to be held at the Long Beach Convention Center, is the best way to ensure the safety and wellbeing of dealers, eventgoers, and others who would have been involved with the show.
