10th Freiberg Leather Days

The 10th Freiberg Leather Days on 11 and 12 May 2022 will also be planned as a hybrid event to ensure that it can be held. Depending on what is permitted, we will be happy to welcome you on site at the Chemnitz Congress Centre or in front of the screens if you are unable or not allowed to travel. An event platform will again connect both "worlds" (on-site and digital).

The VGCT and the FILK Freiberg as co-organizers are looking forward to a reunion.
