Dear sir / madam,
We have been closely monitoring the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) for some time now. The past few days it has become clear the number of infections is increasing and is expected to increase even further in the coming days and weeks. For this reason we have decided to postpone the upcoming edition of eRIC, which was scheduled to take place on 22 & 23 2020 to 24 & 25 March 2021.
We did not come to this conclusion lightly. But after extensive deliberation with our key stakeholders and partners we are convinced that postponing eRIC is the only responsible course of action right now.
Reasons for this are:
1. Your health and those of your employees is the utmost priority for us.
2. There is a lot of uncertainty at the moment about the spread of the virus and possible measures that might be taken on both a national and local level. These are factors that are beyond our control. A last-minute cancellation would have an enormous impact for everyone involved. We cannot wait and see what happens, but we have to act in the best interest of all parties.
3. eRIC is the event for safety professionals and first responders. In the coming days and weeks our society will place a great demand on these professionals. As a result, visiting eRIC likely won’t be possible for them. An expected decrease of visitors will have a negative impact on the results of your participation.
What does this mean for you as an exhibitor?
Per our terms and conditions your registration will carry over to the new event date. Your stand location and all other agreements remain unaffected. Only the date of the event will change to 24 & 25 March 2021. The location of the event will still be Vliegveld Twenthe. You don’t have to do anything for now. We will personally contact you as soon as possible to discuss the further process.
In the coming months we will work hard to make eRIC an even better and grander event in 2021.
This postponement does not affect the scheduled fourth edition of eRIC. This will take place as planned in 2022. The exact date will be announced next year.
Finally, we would like to send our best wishes to all safety professionals in carrying out their duties in the coming weeks and months. We are proud to be able to offer them a stage with eRIC.
On behalf of the entire eRIC organisation team,
Dear sir / madam,
