“We miss everyone in the industry,” said Deb Levy, publisher of AGRR magazine, the show organizer. “We knew that by moving the show until June 7-9th, 2021 in Orlando, Fla. we would delay everyone being able to get together, so we decided to add a Preview Day online this winter.”

“AGW Preview Day uses a neat platform,” says senior events director Tricia Lopez. “Attendees will get the feel of real seminars, will be able to ask questions, stop by interactive booths with live video chats and even network in the hallways. We hope everyone stops by.”
