Opinion on postponing the deadline to 2021

Dear guests visitors, participants, partners,

On behalf of our organising team, we would like to inform you that after a careful consideration of all our options and possibilities, we were forced to make a difficult decision regarding this year's SlovakiaTech Forum - Expo event. We decided to change the conference date from the originally planned 13 - 15 October 2020 to a new date of 5 - 7 October 2021.

As the situation regarding the measures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 is constantly changing and it is not possible to predict the development of relatively confusing, unpredictable and inconsistent restrictive measures of the responsible authorities, we considered it necessary to assess the situation soberly and make perhaps a radical, but responsible decision.

Due to the long-term rhetoric of fear and restrictions on the part of relevant authorities, we concluded that even with our best intentions and compliance with all necessary precautions in organizing SlovakiaTech Forum – Expo, up to the very last moment we would not be certain if we could organize the event in the quality we and you were used to.

Moreover, a conference planned for about 2,000 participants loses its meaning if those participants cannot come. We don't want empty conference halls or an empty exhibition centre. We would not be able to honour our promise to you, our partners, speakers, exhibitors, and to ourselves, to bring the highest quality, advanced technology and the most interesting innovations from Slovakia and the world to Košice and to create a unique and inspiring atmosphere for all participants for three days.

We believe that you will understand our decision and that, despite this year’s difficult situation, we can count on working with you when planning the SlovakiaTech Forum - Expo conference to be held on the new date of October 5-7, 2021.

Our team will continue working, so be sure to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
