Munich, Germany 1-3 September 2021

Welcome to Munich

"Things are starting to look promising for our 2021 Decorative Surfaces Conference. However, we still have to keep in mind that we are in the midst of a global pandemic. Even if we are able to meet in September personally, and I think chances are good, it will still be a conference like no other we ever organized. We will most probably be required to wear masks and keep distance from each other. We might also face restrictions in the number of delegates. Never the less, we have received overwhelming response from our attendees over the last weeks. Everyone is looking forward to the first meeting in our industry since a long time. For those of you who cannot attend for whatever reason there will be an opportunity to join the meeting via the internet. So, while we need to ask for your understanding that things will be different this year in many aspects, we still look forward to seeing you face to face again. We have run quite a few successful webinars over the last months, but just isn’t the same. Join us and meet the industry before the window of opportunity closes again."

Conference News

Covid-19 Update

Good news: Since June 9, 2021, conferences are allowed in Bavaria, following strict hygiene protocols. We will therefore continue to plan the event as scheduled. We will notify you of any change that might occur.


Update on time and location

We found a new place and time for our Decorative Surfaces Conference, which was originally supposed to be held in March of 2020 in Vienna. We assume that developments on the pandemic will allow us to meet in early fall, and by relocating the event to Germany we will reduce the potential impact of a German travel warning, like we had in the past. Meanwhile, we will continue to run webinars from our US office of TCM North America.
