ModuleWorks Insider Conference 2020
March 25-26, 2020
MIC 2020 – Cancelled
As explained in the message last week, we have been monitoring the situation regarding the Coronavirus. Unfortunately there has been a significant increase in the number of cases in Germany, and in particular the Aachen region. Therefore we have decided to cancel the MIC-2020 event.
It is uncertain how long it will take for the risks of Coronavirus to pass, and the schedule later this year is very busy due to many exhibitions, so we plan to schedule the next event, MIC-2021, for March next year. Of course, we will contact you as soon as we have the details to ensure you can be among the first to register.
Meanwhile, we apologise for any inconvenience caused by this cancellation and hope that you understand that we have to put the health of our international community ahead of the benefits of the event.
We look forward to seeing you, once the Coronavirus has passed, at MIC-2021 next year.
