Hello,

Like many in the industry, we have been eager to attend the upcoming CEDIA Expo to reconnect with you in person, show our latest product offerings, and hear about your business.

However, recent news about the COVID Delta variant and an increase in cases has caused us to re-evaluate the risks and benefits of attending a large, in-person event at this time. Because of this, we will no longer be attending the CEDIA Expo this year. Snap One will not have a booth presence, training, party, keynote, or employees present at the show.

This was a difficult decision, and we understand it will be disappointing for many, including us. Our highest priority is keeping you, our employees, and our families safe, and helping to minimize any factors that may negatively impact your business.

We donít know how things will unfold over the next several weeks, but we believe it is important to make this decision now so individuals can plan accordingly.

Thank you for your dedication, understanding, and support. We continue to be inspired and encouraged by your ability to serve customers in the face of challenges, and we are extremely proud to have you as a Snap One Partner.

Although we canít see you in person, we will connect with you in the coming weeks to ensure you remain up to date on our latest company news and announcements.


Sincerely,

Jeff Hindman

Well that sucks. I'm sure Expedia won't care, lol. I didn't see the email though.

Good move.

I made the same decision a few weeks ago when it became clear that the anti-vax crew would be in charge of national personal safety.

Likely I'll skip CES too.

I was waiting to see if they would have required everyone to wear masks. If they had, I would have still come. Anyone need some hotel reservations in Indy or at St. Elmos?

Why is there such a disconnect between Technology/Science and Science/Medicine? I don't get it.

Fresh off their wild success as the inventors of HDMI, they moved on to vaccines.
There is no truth anymore. Only assertions. The internet world has no interest in truth, only vindication for preconceived assumptions.

There is no science involved in purchasing a toy and the joy is immediate. Medicinal consequences are delayed. Itís similar to training a cat. Unless the obvious feedback is immediate, no lesson is learned.

Wait until they all realize they been vaxxed with a kill shot!
I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's AV trouble, a man alone.

Shouldn't you be out celebrating Trump's triumphant return to the White House today? I mean, Mike-TheMyCrackPillowGuy-Lindell has been promising this for weeks.

I hate how this issue has become politicized. I try to stay far away from these discussions, but I want to share something. My mother - who was vaccinated in January and has been diligent in keeping a distance from everyone - has been in ICU battling the new COVID delta variant, which also contributed to pneumonia. And the effects have been way beyond what you think of. Last Sunday she didnít recognize me or even know her name. On Monday she became unable to speak. Today she cannot squeeze my hand or follow simple movements with her eyes.

She is really struggling, and the ways in which she is struggling is brutal to witness. I understand why some might be hesitant to get the vaccine, but the overwhelming science points to the benefits far outweighing potential side effects. I really hope we can look beyond the politics and give credit to the science. I came across a stat put out by some universities math department which modeled the effects on the population if the internet and social media were available during the Polio vaccination program, and it was determined up to 35% of us wouldnít be here today.

I pray your mother gets better.

There was a video a gentleman put out that said this best, and I'm sorry I don't have a link to it. Basically, his wife is fighting cancer and needed to go into the hospital to have something done to help, she had to leave after a few days because they needed the room for all the anti-vaxers that were more critical than she was. He stated that these people should stay home and deal with it and leave the hospitals open to people who have a brain and will listen to what the doctors tell us to do to help prevent getting it.

He said it's funny that all these Covidiots are turning to the very people they said were lying to them about the vaccine now that they are sick.

Maybe we could open up some of the closed hospitals and turn them into no-frills Covid facilities for the unvaccinated. That way the regular hospitals can focus on treating the part of society that listens to reason and does what the medical community recommends. It would also help reduce the stress our healthcare professionals are going through.
