In view of current developments regarding coronavirus, the IKV decided on 2 March to postpone the International Colloquium Plastics Technology from 11 – 12 March 2020 in Aachen. Instead, the event will take place from 9 – 10 September 2020. The International Symposium on Plastics Technology on 10 March, which was scheduled in advance of the colloquium, will also be postponed to an alternative date on 8 September 2020.
The management of the IKV and the board of the IKV Association of Sponsors take the developments around the coronavirus (Covid-19) very seriously. Those responsible at the Institute have been following the situation very carefully over the last few days and have been in intensive exchange with the responsible authorities. Based on the information currently available, the decision was made not to take any risks. The cancellation of the two events, for which we expected around 800 international participants, is purely preventative. There is currently no known suspicious case in the direct vicinity of the IKV.
All booked participant tickets will remain valid for the alternative dates mentioned. If you wish to generally refrain from participating on the alternative date, you can cancel your ticket free of charge until 16 March 2020.
We assure you that this decision was by no means an easy one. However, we are convinced that we are acting responsibly in the interests of our guests and employees and hope for your understanding.
We will of course inform you about further details regarding the alternative date as soon as possible. If you have any questions in advance, our organisation team will be happy to help you.
