The 2022 Long Beach Fred Hall show was officially cancelled earlier today.

After taking a year off due to the pandemic, Fred Hall was expected to return this year on March 2nd – 6th. The parent company, Duncan McIntosh Co., officially cancelled the 2022 show and is reaching out to its vendors stating:

“Owing to the ongoing pandemic caused by covid-19 and the local governmental protocols requiring masks, proof of vaccination and or at the door testing, we are not able to move forward with the Fred Hall Show at the Long Beach Convention Center. We are truly sorry about this last-minute development, but we were unfortunately led to believe that these types of government regulations would have been sufficiently lifted or relaxed by now. Such is not the case, and thus we cannot produce the kind of high-quality show that is expected by our exhibitors and the attending public under the current government restrictions. Again, we are truly sorry and exhibitor refunds will be available.”

Fred Hall was an iconic show that many of us looked forward to each year and hope to see it back again in the future.
