    On behalf of John Shubin, Chair of the Board of Trustees, and Jorge Zamanillo, Executive Director of HistoryMiami:

    Unfortunately we have decided to cancel the in-person Miami International Map Fair in February of 2022.
     
    This is a difficult decision for us. We took into account the increased expenses due to inflation, the unknown variable of fair attendance, and the ever-present possibility of a resurgence in COVID19 cases in Europe and the United States. Another resurgence would impede some of our dealers and guests from traveling or may cause closures again from our local government. HistoryMiami appreciates your understanding.
