Mikrocentrum, VOM and Vereniging ION have decided to postpone the knowledge and network event Materials+Eurofinish+Surface 2020 to May 26 and 27, 2021. This decision has been made based on the stricter regulations and rising uncertainty concerning the Corona virus.
“The well-being of visitors, exhibitors and everyone else involved with this event is the number one priority for us as organizer of this event. Ever since the start of our collaboration, our intention and goal was to make this renewed and combined event a great success. Due to the current developments, it will be difficult to achieve this in June of this year. The stricter regulations given by the government in combination with various concerns expressed by exhibitors, gave us a grounded reason to make the final decision for postponing this event.” Said organizers Timo van Leent (Mikrocentrum), Veerle Fincken (VOM) and Egbert Stremmelaar (Vereniging ION).
“For now, it is important that we as a society, make sure that in this coming period stay as healthy as possible. That is why we have chosen to postpone the event to 2021. In this way, we can still turn it into a great knowledge and network event that is crossing borders! ”
The concept remains intact, as well as the location
The new date is set on Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 May 2021 at the same venue: NH Conference Center Koningshof at Veldhoven (Netherlands). The concept, the design of the exhibition floor and the intended themes in the lecture program will, as far as possible, be kept intact. Meanwhile, the organization has contacted all exhibitors and is looking into the wishes and possibilities for each participant
