Technology Days 2021 canceled!

Safety must take priority

10.05.2021
ARBURG is canceling the Technology Days event it was planning to hold between June 7 and 12, 2021. Consultations with official bodies and consideration of the effects of the global coronavirus epidemic, which are still all too evident, prompted the decision.

Technology Days are a brand in their own right
The German government's so-called “federal emergency brake” has once again had a decisive impact on the situation. “We very much regret this cancellation but we have been compelled to take this step due to the general parameters”, explained Juliane Hehl, Managing Partner responsible for Marketing at Arburg. “Up until the final moment, we were hoping, and were genuinely working flat out, to enable these Technology Days to take place in the form, at long last, of a physical trade fair”, she said, with reference to all the planning and efforts invested over the last few months. Noting that the Technology Days are a brand in their own right, as well as being the largest in-house event in the entire world of plastics, Juliane Hehl added that the company had done everything it could to facilitate, at long last, a personal and physical event experience for its customers.

Safety of visitors and employees
The postponement of the traditional timing of this event from March to June, the extension from four to six days, a COVID-compliant invitation and visitor management system, a meticulously planned hygiene and testing concept – with all of these measures, the safety of visitors and employees was always at the forefront of Arburg's deliberations.

Eager anticipation of the 2022 Technology Days
As unfortunate as things are at present, we stand by our view that the whole world is looking forward to getting back to normal events and trade fairs”, stated Juliane Hehl, adding that the Technology Days could have acted as a beacon for an entire sector, so it was entirely right and proper to have made every attempt to organize and hold the event. “We therefore extend an even warmer invitation to the plastics community to visit our Technology Days here in Lossburg in March 2022!”
