KRAKDENT 2020 postponed to May
Due to the lastest coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, according to the current recommendations from the State Sanitary Inspection, Chief Sanitary Inspector recommedation for medical staff (from 2 March 2020) and after consultations with Director of the Province Sanitary and Epidemiological Station in Krakow, who gave official opinion today (3 March 2020) and after consulting with Voivodship Department of Security and Crisis Management – we decided to postpone KRAKDENT® 2020. The new planned date is: 28-30 May 2020.
International Dental Trade Fair KRAKDENT® is the biggest dental exhibition in Poland and we have over 15000 visitors from all over the world (including Italy, Germany and France). In the face of restrictions given by State Sanitary Inspection concerning participation of abroad visitors and recommendation to „cancel all conferences and medical events”, included in Statement of the Chief Sanitary Inspector for medical professionals from March 2, 2020 and also according to appeal of President of the Supreme Medical Council, who advise „organizers of all events who gather a lot of participants” – to cancel it, we made this hard decision to postpone date of KRAKDENT to 28-30 May 2020. We also got a petition from group of exhibitors with request to postpone our event.
Safety of our exhibitors and visitors is our priority. A week ago there was no indication that we would have to make that decision. In the face of circumstances that are beyond our control, the situation is serious enough and the decision about changing date is the best possible solution.
Postponing KRAKDENT® is associated with numerous inconveniences for visitors and also for exhibitors. Our organizational preparations for this year's edition was already finished.
The more we want to thank you for the many voices of understanding and support in the face of the current situation.
