Dear Participants,

A few weeks ago we were planning to meet at the Vienna Marriott Hotel for another Decorative Surfaces Conference. However, due to circumstances that were beyond our control things have taken on a completely different development since then. The good news is that there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel:

We are happy to inform you that our conference and workshop have been moved to a new date:

Conference: October 19-20, 2020 , 9am-5pm
Workshop: October 21, 2020 , 9am-5pm

The venue will stay the same. Here is all the information that is available to us at this time:


All existing registrations, including cancellations made by delegates prior to our announcement to postpone the conference, will be automatically transferred to the new date, so you will not have to register again. All registrations are fully transferable. Since the event was postponed and not cancelled, we are, however, unable to give refunds pursuant to Article 3 of our General Business Terms.

Hotel room reservations

All existing hotel room reservations have been canceled, you will need to make new reservations for October. We will post details on the conference website and in a newsletter as soon as they are available to us.

Conference program

We have been in contact with the speakers, and it looks like there will be very little change in the technical program of the conference.

Workshop program

The workshop program will be unchanged.
