Swiss event organiser ICM has decided to postpone next month’s International Automobile Recycling Congress (IARC) in Geneva to a ‘safer’ date next summer.
The 20th edition of the 2-day car recycling event was supposed to take place from 2-4 September in the Swiss capital. However, the increasing number of coronavirus cases as well as global travel restrictions and strict quarantine advice has sparked a great deal of uncertainty and concern in the recycling community.
‘Many delegates, speakers and exhibitors have cancelled their participation in the congress over the last few days,’ ICM says. ‘Our primary objective is the safe, professional and successful organisation of IARC 2020. With the daily changing travel issues imposed by each country and the growing health risk, this goal can unfortunately no longer be guaranteed.’
As such, the conference is postponed to June 23 – 25, 2021. ICM points out that all booked tickets remain valid for the new date.
‘We deeply regret this situation, but the wellbeing of all our participants is our top priority. We thank you for your understanding in these challenging times,’ so the organiser says.
