ETRA-Autopromotec

Owing to the persistence of Covid-19, continuing risks and travel restrictions still in force with many countries, the ETRA Board and Committee Chair, have met and unanimously agree that it would be in the best interest of speakers, delegates and guests to further postpone the 27th ETRA Conference.

Covid 19 Continues to Hit Conferences

In a statement, the Board said: "We would like to confirm that the 27th ETRA Conference on Tyre Recycling will be postponed. It is now scheduled to take place from Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th March 2021. 

"We have changed the date also taking into account any requests and concerns from people interested but worried for not being able to plan a safe trip, owing to the health and travel issues.

"We are now back to the normal ETRA Conference dates, usually scheduled in March. We hope that this will allow you to easily update your schedules matching with your various commitments so that you will be able to participate in the 27th ETRA Conference.

"We will contact you with updates as soon as the Hotel and Programme are reconfirmed. Fees will remain the same for both delegates and speakers. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or wish additional information."

Also, Autopromotec, the leading European auto trade exhibition held in Bologna on a biennial basis, has been postponed until 25th-28th May 2022. In the heart of the Motor Valley, Autopromotec, an event that has gathered all aftermarket product groups for over 50 years, took the important decision after a deep analysis of the economic and sanitary framework on a global scale, having as its primary goal the protection of its almost 1700 exhibiting companies

The Autopromotec release stated; "The postponement to 2022, a year identified by many analysts as that of the economic recovery, will enable the exhibiting companies to invest their financial resources at a more appropriate moment, thus being able to maximse business opportunities, which has always been a strong point of the Bologna exhibition."
