RELEASE
The next edition of Techni-Mat to be held on October 7th and 8th 2020

Kortrijk, March 10th 2020. With an ever increasing number of Coronavirus (Covid-19)
contaminations, more and more events and trade fairs are being cancelled all over Europe.
Therefore, Techni-Mat decided yesterday to postpone the first edition of this new trade fair to
October 7th and 8th in Kortrijk Xpo.

Moreover, Techni-Mat follows the instructions given by the Belgian federal government to postpone
any indoor event hosting more than 1.000 people.

Gregory Olszewski, Managing Director The Fair Experts : “An inquiry among exhibitors indicated that
they accept this decision and are willing to go along with it.”
“It shows a sense of reality that the organisers have taken this decision – and that is greatly
appreciated”, was the comment heard most frequently from those contacted.

In any event, the organisation is counting on everyone’s understanding and respect for this difficult
decision.
