After careful considerations with regard to a rapidly spreading Covid—19 pandemic and many uncertainties in the future we decided – admittedly with a heavy heart – to cancel the “Freiberg Leather Days”, scheduled for June, 18 and 19, 2020. Facing a continued health crises, expected long-term travel restrictions throughout Europe and worldwide as well as increasingly difficult economic conditions a postponement of the conference into the second half of this year will be connected with numerous uncertainties as well. The next “Freiberg Leather Days” are scheduled for June 9 and 10, 2021 here with us in Freiberg.

We regret this step deeply, though at present we do not see any alternative to provide reliable planning for you and for us as organisers. In this context, we are looking forward to welcome you next year here with us in Freiberg!

We thank you for your understanding. Remain healthy, all the best and see you in 2021!

On behalf of the VGCT board, the FILK Freiberg management and the organising team of the “Freiberg Leather Days”
