As a result of the global coronavirus outbreak, the Dscoop global Board is rescheduling its Edge Orlando 2020 event set for March 29 to April 1 in Orlando, Fla., to a future date.

“Due to the latest information about the coronavirus/COVID-19, and to proactively protect the well-being of its members, partners and employees, the Dscoop global Board reached the decision today to reschedule Edge Orlando 2020 to a later date, still to be determined,” Dscoop said in a March 9 statement.

The global Board is comprised of HP executives, Dscoop PSP members, and Dscoop leadership.

“Nothing is more important to us than the health of our Dscoop community, and this is not a decision Dscoop has taken lightly,” said Keith Wilmot, CEO of Dscoop. “Using guidance from official global health experts, Dscoop will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates on rescheduled plans for the event.”

“As a PSP and long-time Dscoop member, I look forward to this yearly gathering because the benefits to my team are huge in terms of industry knowledge, seeing the latest technology, and connecting with other PSPs to grow our business,”. “The decision to reschedule wasn’t made lightly, and I am confident we will find a new date shortly and continue planning this extraordinary event,” said Jay Dollries, Dscoop’s Global Board chairman and owner of Innovative Labeling Solutions.

The Dscoop Edge show is designed to help HP print service providers and solution partners learn, connect and grow. At the rescheduled event, the March 9 statement said, attendees will see the latest HP innovations and partner solutions as well as develop business and leadership skills, receive hands-on technical training, network with fellow PSPs, and much more.
