At Long Last, The Nevada Event Returns For Its 35th Gathering.
By Donna Schmidt
Despite a one-year postponement in June 2020 due to the global pandemic, the Elko Mining Expo is back, albeit with a few changes to procedures.
The Elko Convention and Visitors Authority (ECVA) said its 35th annual exposition is scheduled from June 7-11 at the Elk Convention Center with the mining exhibits set to open the morning of June 10. Registration will be required in 2021, versus previous years when the event was open to the public.
An opening reception will be held for those attending on June 9 at 6 p.m., and guests will have June 10 and 11 (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., respectively) to visit the booths on the show floor.
Registration limits have been set for safety on the show floor, and face coverings will be worn. At press time, 312 vendors were registered for booths.
“We are committed to creating a safe event for all and, as such, anticipate this year’s expo will look a bit different from previous years,” the ECVA said of Elko 2021.
“While we are disappointed circumstances beyond our control have forced these changes, we are excited the Expo will happen and strongly feel it will still greatly benefit the community,” Matt McCarty, ECVA board chairman, told local media outlet Elko Daily earlier this year.
While at the Elko Mining Expo, look around for the following companies and check out the product and services at their respective booths.
