Attention: Congress cancelled!

Due to the current developments in the Corona Pandemic and the official ban on large events related to the corona virus COVID-19 (SARS-CoV-2), we regret that we have to cancel the 28th Factory of the Year Congress planned for June 16-19, 2020.

As organizers, we very much regret this step. We are aware of the consequences of the decision to cancel this congress, which has been established for many years and is important for our visitors. In intensive talks with Kearney and the representatives of the authorities, we have discussed and weighed up all the options over the past few days. In the end, the health of all congress participants is our top priority. For this reason, the decision taken is unfortunately unavoidable. We hope you will understand this.
Cancellation of your participation is free of charge and already paid participation fees will of course be refunded.

Please note: We are planning a webinar in autumn with an excerpt from the programme “28th Factory of the Year”. We will keep you up to date on this and look forward to your participation. You will receive separate information on this.

We thank you for your understanding and look forward to welcoming you at the next Factory of the Year Congress or at one of our other conferences.

Please remain with us!
Your SV Events & Kearney Team
