AD Moves Fall Meetings to Virtual Setting


North American buying group AD, Wayne, Pennsylvania, this week announced the group will be going to a virtual format for its slate of 2020 North American and other fall meetings in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The buying group said it worked collaboratively with impacted divisional boards, committees and its associates to ensure a meaningful virtual experience that allows participants to experience the networking and relationship-building aspects of AD’s signature meetings.

AD’s virtual meetings will include member and supplier business updates and strategic supplier briefings. The majority will also include network meetings and booth sessions.

“I’m so grateful to our independents, supplier partners and associates who contributed their perspectives and ideas as we work to deliver meetings that help us all connect, get updated and build on our relationships virtually,” said AD CEO and Chairman Bill Weisberg. “We understand many members, suppliers and service providers share our disappointment that we can’t meet in person. We’ll be back at it soon and look forward to reconnecting face to face when conditions permit us to do so.”
