The February Long Beach Expo has joined the growing list of coin shows and conventions that have been cancelled in early 2021. The event, originally scheduled for February 4-6, at the Long Beach Convention Center has been cancelled. The cancellation is due to the continued restrictions in placed in California to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Here is the announcement from the LBE on the cancellation, emphasizing that no business will be conducted during the allotted times for the event.
As a national show, the safety of our visitors, dealers, and employees will always be our top priority. With that in mind, it is with much sadness that we, in coordination with the Long Beach Convention Center, are announcing the cancellation of the February 4-6, 2021 Long Beach Coin, Currency, Stamp, and Sports Card Expo. Governor Gavin Newsom’s March 12 Executive Order to cancel all large gatherings due to the spread of COVID-19 must still be followed. It’s important to reiterate that there will be no business being conducted at the Long Beach Expo during the allotted show times in February.

With the spread of the coronavirus rapidly increasing throughout California, we want to wish everyone good health and safety. 2020 has truly been a difficult year for us all, but as long as we continue to stick together as an industry, 2021 will certainly be the light at the end of the tunnel.
For the Long Beach Expo, our focus will transition to doing everything in our power to make the June 17-19, 2021 Long Beach Expo a reality. When our show comes back, we will be ready to provide the BEST possible show to make up for all these cancellations. We can’t wait to welcome everyone back in our doors. We hope to see you then.
