The European Brushware industry might be in a relatively stable situation as it concerns the customer markets, but is facing this unprecendented turmoil on the raw materials markets and transport disruption.
The emphasis has changed although the impact of COVID-19 continues our businesses and daily life.
No one knows when things are getting back to normal, with lockdown measures tightened in many European countries. Vaccination processes make slow progress and the virus is still not under control.
This forced the FEIBP board to decide to cancel the 62nd FEIBP congress, scheduled for 22 – 24 September 2021 in Prague.
Sponsors will remain reluctant and who will register and book hotel accommodation and make travel arrangements?
With the Grandior Hotel Prague and the other congress partners it was agreed to postpone the event with another year to 21 – 24 September 2022.
As in 2020 the alternative will be A VIRTUAL GENERAL ASSEMBLY 2021 and please save the date:
THURSDAY 14 OCTOBER 2021, AFTERNOON SESSION
Prior to this GA all FEIBP Working Groups will have meetings and special items / speakers will be included into the programme.
The FEIBP board is convinced that the FEIBP membership will understand and accept this decision.
