Having canceled its Technology Days 2020 due to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, Arburg is playing it safe in 2021—at least as far as it can—and will host the event June 9-12, instead of earlier in March, when it usually takes place.
"In these uncertain times, we are determined not to put safety and security at risk," explained Juliane Hehl, who is responsible for the marketing department in her role as managing partner of the company. "By making the decision to move the event to June at this early stage, we are proactively demonstrating our commitment to the responsibility we owe to our customers, partners and employees."
The Technology Days, Arburg's annual house event, have been a fixture on the calendar of the international plastics industry since 1999.
According to the company, about 93,000 invited guests from around 50 countries have attended the event since its inception.
"Welcoming around 6,000 visitors every year, the Technology Days are a hallmark that Arburg is famous for all over the world," said Juliane Hehl.
It is a tradition Arburg intends to continue, although after 2021, the intention is to revert to the second week of March for the event.
For now: "You should definitely make space in your diaries for the Technology Days from June 9 to 12, 2021," said Hehl. "I can promise you now—it will be worth it!"
