Based on the City of Toronto’s announcement to cancel public events and permits for all major events and festivals through June 30, the postponed One Of A Kind 2020 Spring Show—set to take place on June 18 to 21 at the Enercare Centre, Exhibition Place—will now be cancelled.
The past few weeks have been very humbling for all of us at One Of A Kind. Your words of encouragement have inspired us to forge ahead and re-imagine the Spring Show in June. Your kindness and understanding have given us hope to look forward to a time where we can celebrate and support the small but mighty business community in person, again.
In these unprecedented times, we knew the best we could do is to remain optimistic while following government guidance as we adjust to our new realities amidst COVID-19. While we are heartbroken that we cannot proceed with our postponed Spring Show, we are in full support of the city's decision. At this time, all of us must take every action possible to ensure the health and safety of our community.
We want to take this opportunity to thank all of you for reaching out via emails and social media. At One Of A Kind, our purpose is to champion creativity through craft. Despite the unique and challenging situation we are in, we believe creativity will give us the new perspective we need to drive our mission forward. For this reason, we are as committed as ever to deliver value to our community in new and exciting ways. Starting next week, we will be hosting a series of virtual One Of A Kind Shows on Instagram. Please stay tuned on our website for more news and announcements.
In the next few days, we will be reaching out to all our exhibitors, visitors and partners to discuss next steps. We want to reassure everyone with 2020 Spring Show tickets that they will be honoured at the 2020 Winter Show (November 26 to December 6).
Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to seeing everyone in November.
