IRU 2022 COVID Update:

The 2022 International Roundup tradeshow in Fargo, North Dakota will be taking place in just two weeks, and we cannot wait to welcome attendees back to the Great American West for this year’s event! We have been busy making final preparations to ensure your time in Fargo is as productive and enjoyable as possible.

Given the current global health situation, event organizers have decided to relax IRU COVID-19 protocols. While our top priority is hosting a productive and safe event, we recognize it is not possible to remove all risks, particularly concerning COVID-19. After careful consideration and discussions among the Great American West cooperative of Idaho, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota and Wyoming; the state of North Dakota; the community of Fargo-Moorhead; RMI; and our international representatives, we have implemented the following measures to promote the health and wellbeing of attendees and staff during IRU:

  • Attendees will no longer be required to provide a negative test result to participate in IRU events
  • It is strongly recommended that all event attendees are fully vaccinated and boosted before IRU
  • Masks are optional at all IRU Marketplaces and events
  • All attendees will be required to sign a Waiver and Acknowledgement of Personal Responsibility upon arrival
  • All attendees must acknowledge and follow all posted signage in relation to COVID-19 health protocols
  • Hand-sanitizing stations will be located throughout the IRU venue and on all marketplace tables
  • Guidance will be provided to attendees about local COVID-19 testing and health-care facilities

As the situation evolves, so will our approach to keeping attendees safe. We reserve the right to change, update or add to these requirements at any time in order to best protect the health and safety of our attendees. Relevant updates to COVID-19 health and safety protocols will be provided to all attendees on a regular basis and posted on If there are any questions or concerns regarding the event or these COVID-19 protocols, please contact us.

The Great American West is pleased to welcome attendees back to the region for the 2022 IRU event in Fargo as we have missed you all dearly! We look forward to seeing you soon.
