“The Management Committee was unanimous in its decision to cancel the 2020 edition, and in its desire for the Association’s events to play a central role in the industry’s recovery from 2021,” said TFWA president Alain Maingreaud.
He continued, “The cancellation of TFWA World Exhibition & Conference will have a significant impact on the Association’s finances, but thanks to the sound management of our resources up to now, we have been able to build reserves to help us cope with difficult periods such as this. We remain determined to do all we can to help our industry emerge from its most difficult period, keep our members and partners informed and help coordinate our industry’s response to the current crisis.
“We would like to thank all those associated with our event in Cannes, including the Mayor of Cannes and our many friends and partners in the city, for their understanding at this difficult time. We are also grateful for the support of our exhibitors, visitors, trade press and other partners. TFWA will continue to work with them to help rebuild our industry,” commented Maingreaud.
The event is scheduled to take place in 2021, although the exact dates have not yet been determined.
