For 34 years, the I-X Christmas Connection has kicked off the holiday shopping season in Northeast Ohio. While we had hoped to once again fill the I-X Center with the magic of Christmas, the health and safety of everyone is our top priority.
So today, it is with a very heavy heart we announce the cancellation of the 2020 I-X Christmas Connection in response to the ongoing public health concerns brought on by the pandemic. While we have remained hopeful over the last five months, it has become extremely difficult to produce a safe event of this stature. With the growing number of Coronavirus cases and with the Governor’s order to indefinitely ban all mass gatherings, we have come to this decision to cancel.
There are so many things we will miss this year: all the exhibitors, event partners and attendees, smiles on children’s faces as they meet Santa and Mrs. Claus, live entertainment and so much more. So, as we halt preparations for this year’s event, our team will focus their efforts on the 2021 I-X Christmas Connection (November 19-21, 2021) to ensure the BEST holiday shopping experience around.
Please continue to stay healthy and safe. You will be in our thoughts.
