FEICA, the Association of the European Adhesive and Sealant Industry, recently announced that the threat posed by the COVID-19 pandemic has prompted the cancellation of its European Adhesive & Sealant Conference and EXPO. The event had been scheduled for September 9-11, 2020, in Warsaw, Poland.

“Maintaining the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, speakers and staff is of paramount importance to us,” the association said in a statement. “We did investigate alternatives, however, due to logistical issues, as well as feedback from our members, we decided to cancel this year’s event.

“Life around the world has changed rapidly in a short period of time. The way we live, interact and do business have all been radically disrupted. We will come out of this eager to connect on a human level and keen to celebrate everything we value as a community. In this context, FEICA is looking forward to bringing everyone together and seeing you all again at FEICA 2021.

“We will be in contact with exhibitors, sponsors and participants individually to organise a refund or reschedule their participation for 2021.”
