First and foremost, thank you for supporting us in our efforts to provide exposure and education to the greater Ohio creative community to reliable tools and techniques for motion and still production. Your attendance and participation are what helps drive the growth of our industry as a whole.

As we continue to navigate the growing epidemic that surrounds the COVID-19 virus, we wanted to be transparent in our thought process to continue forward with the show. Below were some of the aggregated data that led to our decision.

  • At the time of writing this message, less than 5% of attendees are reported from being out of state, the rest being from Ohio, and mainly the Greater Columbus area.

  • More than 60% of our registered attendees are from Greater Columbus area (Defined here as within 30mi of Columbus Center)

  • Columbus, currently, has no reported cases of the virus.

  • Due to company travel restrictions we have had three vendors, Panasonic, AbelCine and VersaFlex, withdraw from the show, if you have questions about their products please touch base with an Ohio HD Team member and we’ll put you in contact with them!

  • Some of the products we were looking forward to seeing are not available due to company restrictions on shipping and trade show schedules.

  • Our numbers are reduced slightly this year and with that the risk is down.

With all of that in mind, we believe our community’s desire for continued development outweighs the current risks of hosting the event. That said, the safety and wellbeing of our community are extremely important to us. If you plan to attend, we are asking the following:

  • If you feel ill, or have knowingly been exposed to someone with COVID-19, or any other infectious disease we kindly ask that you tune into our Livestream of the show and refrain from attending the actual event.

  • For attendees, please limit touching other people. While it’s customary to welcome someone with a handshake, please excuse folks from traditional greetings.

  • Please wash your hands before eating or touching your face. This show is often extremely tactile with opportunities to work with the latest gear. Be sure to wash after touching the products.

  • Please don’t self-serve on food, our catering staff will gladly serve you.

We are looking forward to seeing you all at the event as we continue to work to create a stronger production community in the region.

Thanks, Ohio HD Team
