The Nixa Chamber of Commerce has announced they are postponing the 25th Annual NIXPO event scheduled for March 25, 2020.
The Chamber announced the cancellation Thursday because of concerns related to the novel coronavirus.
“This was a tough decision as we understand the efforts that have went into preparing for this event,” Chamber leaders wrote in a press statement.
The Chamber said they were anticipating 1,000 attendees at the event, which is why they made the decision to move the event to August 8, 2020, at Nixa High School.
“The Nixa Chamber is recommending that you still participate in shop and dine initiatives here locally but in a safe way,” the Chamber wrote in their press statement. “We are still holding our regular events as Working Women in Nixa, NXYP, and the Nixa Chamber Luncheon, as they are not large scale events in accordance to CDC recommendations. We ask that if you are not feeling well you stay home, skip handshakes, and wash your hands often. “
