2020 We are working on a postponement to October 3rd & 4th 2020 instead of our May 10th date. However - and although it is our favorite solution - we don’t control all the elements, and a cancelation of 2020’s edition is unfortunately a possibility. In this case, and even though the regulation plans that in case of cancellation for “force majeure” , no reimbursement is offered; our Committee will study - after having closed its accounts and exchanged with all its partners and suppliers - the possibility to reimburse a part of the registration fee for those who want it.
You will be informed in May of the definitive decision, or not, that the event will be held in autumn 2020.
