IACC postpones Taste of Italy events in Houston, New Orleans, and Savor Italy in Los Angeles

As U.S. issues Italy travel advisory, IACC postpones food and wine festivals planned for Houston, New Orleans, and Los Angeles in March.

The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce South Central has officially postponed its food and wine festivals and trade fairs previously scheduled for March in Houston (March 29-30) and New Orleans (March 31). The Italy-America Chamber of Commerce West (Los Angeles) has also postponed the festivals’ sister event in Los Angeles previously scheduled for April 2.

The IACC has decided to reschedule the gatherings in the wake of news reports of U.S. carrier flight cancellations to and from northern Italy and the U.S. government’s newly announced screening policy for travelers arriving in the country from Italy.

“Given the evolving situation,” says IACC Houston director Alessia Paolicchi, “we felt it wise to reschedule the Texas and Louisiana events, and our counterparts in Los Angeles agreed. We’re currently working with all of our partners, including the Los Angeles office and the Southern Food and Beverage museum in New Orleans, on setting up new dates for all three events, possibly in June.”

“Although we are confident that the spread of the novel coronavirus will soon be contained in Italy and in the U.S.,” she adds, “we feel that it’s in everyone’s best interest to postpone these events, especially given how many working parts are in play.”

The cancellation of the Prowein wine trade fair, previously scheduled for March 15-17 in Düsseldorf, Germany, was another factor in the decision-making process, note the event organizers.

New dates will be announced as soon as possible, and the organizers are planning to coordinate the scheduling so as not to conflict with other rescheduled food and wine events in the U.S. and Europe.
