After intensive discussions with our prospective host VHI, as well as with the EPF Chairman, we deeply regret to announce that the physical meetings planned for the EPF Annual General Meeting in Berlin on 9-11 June this year have been cancelled. The unfortunate evolution of the pandemic makes it unrealistic to organise a gathering in Berlin in June, and hence this decision has been taken.
We do confirm that the meetings of the Managing Board (9 June 2021) and the General Assembly (10 June 2021) will go ahead online on the dates that were already fixed. In addition, we also envisage a Press Conference on 15 June 2021.
We are truly sorry for this disappointing news. We would like to thank VHI for all the efforts made to host this AGM, first in 2020, and then again in 2021. It promised to be a wonderful gathering of the wood-based panels sector with multiple influential politicians for a deep industry discussion. Sadly, this was ultimately not possible.
