- This is the toughest decision in the history of our company. We involved all teams and many subcontractors in the preparations for the event. The costs incurred are enormous and the losses will be felt for a long time. A month ago, we were convinced that we would organize KRAKDENT®, but in the times of fighting the pandemic, the reality changes almost overnight, making any planning difficult and making yesterday's right decisions no longer reasonable. The health of our employees and guests is a priority, so we know that in the current situation our decision is the best possible. - ensures Grażyna Grabowska, the President of Targi w Krakowie.

According to the Regulation of the Council of Ministers, trade fairs can be organized since June 6. On July 24, a law reducing some of the restrictions entered into force. Everything have indicated that the KRAKDENT® Trade Fair can be held. Despite the green light from the government, as organizers we put the needs of exhibitors and visitors first, which is why we have listened carefully to the opinions and suggestions of the industry. - We had many conversations and exchanged numerous letters with our clients. Some people declared their participation, some decided to visit us next year. Our guests - dentists and hygienists, who visit KRAKDENT® in large numbers each year, had many concerns about their participation. They have come as a result from their profession and frequent contact with patients. For us, the opinion of the dental industry is invaluable, because as organizers of the event with nearly 30 years of experience, we feel part of this group. - adds President Grabowska.

- The last few months have been very difficult. Changing regulations and an uncertain situation hampered any action. The decision not to organize KRAKDENT® in 2020 was fully understood by the exhibitors. The preliminary talks show that as many as 90% of companies declare their participation in 2021. Thank you for all the words of support, it is very important to us. I can assure you that we will make every effort to ensure that in April 2021 KRAKDENT® Trade Fair, the achievements of our many years of work, is at a high organizational and substantive level. - convinces Beata Simon Team Leader of KRAKDENT® Trade Fair.

KRAKDENT® is popular every year. Last year, the fair was visited by 15,000 visitors from all over the world, and 451 exhibitors presented their offers. There were also numerous trainings that could not be carried out this year. This year's edition was to surprise everyone with a rich accompanying program. There were numerous attractions waiting for the participants, which had to be canceled due to the pandemic.

The year 2020 will be written in black letters in history, and in the history of our trade fair for sure. Everyone is watching the situation in the country impatiently, believing that 2021 will bring improvement. Then a quick return to the trade fairs will be crucial in the development of many companies. Industry meetings are a driving force for the entire economy, here you can learn about new products, establish and consolidate new contacts and, above all, present your offer.

We will meet at the KRAKDENT® International Dental Trade Fair in Krakow on April 15-17, 2021.
