Cancellation of Dornbirn-GFC 2020
This decision was very difficult for us and we regret it very much. Due to the impact of COVID 19 there will be no possibility to conduct the congress in its usual form this year. The continuing travel restrictions and the extraordinary economic situation complicate the organisation of the event enormously. The health aspect and the safety of our visitors are in the foreground of our decision.
The date for next year has already been fixed and the congress will take place in the usual quality: 60th Dornbirn-GFC: 15 – 17 September 2021.
Dornbirn GFC, which is held every year in September in Dornbirn, Austria, is used as a network platform while hundreds of participants receive information about the latest innovations of the global fiber and textile industry.
