The convention cancellations related to concerns over coronavirus continue for Las Vegas in 2020.   The National Hardware Show set for early September and the Global Gaming Expo set for the first week of October were called off by organizers Wednesday.   The National Hardware show says it will hold a virtual version later this year.

The Global Gaming Expo would have brought tens-of-thousands of attendees to the Sands Expo and Convention Center.

Both groups plan to return to Las Vegas for in-person shows in 2021.
