FFEIBP Announcement April 2nd 2020
62nd FEIBP congress postponed to 2021
General manager, Fons J.M. Ceelaert, informs:
The impact of COVID-19 in general and the European brushware industry in particular was considered by the FEIBP board.
The situation is nowhere under control and nobody can predict when things might start to return to normal.
FEIBP prepared a great program for the 62nd FEIBP congress, with the brushmakers heading for Central Europe, Prague. The communication did start already and the congress website has been launched.
In the current circumstances the brushware manufacturers and suppliers face difficult times and key priority is to survive this period.
- Everybody will be keen on cost saving measures during and after the crisis
- Our members are not at all thinking about registering for the Prague congress
- Sponsors could be reluctant to support the FEIBP congress
- We may expect no delegates from the ABMA
If the congress will be held as planned in September 2020, we feel that this would lead to a low attendance and a disastrous result.
The FEIBP board decided to postpone the FEIBP congress 2020 to 2021, same location / Prague/CZ.
The congress hotel, service providers and speakers did agree to move the congress with one year.
Their flexibility is very much appreciated and we are happy to announce that the 62nd FEIBP congress will take place
22 - 25 September 2021
Congress Hotel Grandior
Prague (Czech Republic)
You will be kept informed by regular Newsletters and information on the website will be modified.
Take care and stay healthy!
