The leading event for the global electronics recycling sector, the International Electronics Recycling Congress, was due to be celebrating its 20th anniversary in January. However, due to the pandemic there will be no event nor birthday party.
‘Travel restrictions and safety measures put in place over the past few weeks all over the world force us to make the difficult decision to cancel IERC 2021,’ says Jeanette Duttlinger of Swiss event organiser ICM.
‘Following increased and overwhelming concerns about health and safety, we feel that this is the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation,’ she stresses. ‘We deeply regret that we are unable to hold this congress but we know it is the right decision based on the information we have today.’
IERC 2022 will take place on 19-21 January 2022. As always, it will be staged in Salzburg, Austria.
