According to the statement, EFFCI recommends any and all events that have already been cancelled, to be rescheduled for 2021. Furthermore, the EFFCI advises that organizers whose events are still scheduled to take place this year, “listen to the advice of governments and experts about the safety of such gatherings, and act appropriately.”
“We have sorely missed the opportunity to meet, exchange ideas and opinions, and to launch our innovations and new concepts,” the statement concluded. “It is far more important that we know we are behaving responsibly, and putting the health and safety of people first.”
