Munich, Germany 1-3 September 2021

Welcome to Munich

"As for many others, 2020 has not been the easiest year for a conference organizer. Basically, we were told that in the foreseeable future we will not be able to do our work, at least not in the way we used and loved to do it. We needed to learn that the all so popular webinars are only a poor replacement for our events in real life. But at the same time, we were overwhelmed by the sympathy and support we received from our sponsors, participants, partners and suppliers. Their message was that they look forward to returning to our events once this nightmare is over. All that gives us hope that there will be turnaround in 2021. We have therefore started to plan to reschedule the 2020 conference for 1-3 September, 2021 in Munich. We believe that a combination of warmer weather in summer, together with the emerging vaccinations and carefully selected measures at the conference will favor events the size of ours. We will still continue to evaluate the situation on a daily basis. Meanwhile, please let us know in case you have questions. I look forward to seeing you again in real life."

Managing Director, Technical Conference Management

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.

Covid-19 Update

Based on the request of our sponsors and speakers we have postponed our October event to 2021. We may also relocate the event to Germany, so that travel restrictions are less of an issue for the majority of the delegates.
