Piano Congress 2021 Warsaw (postponed until 2022)

Piano Congress 2021 Warsaw

 

The Polish Piano Tuners’ Association and Europiano are please to invite you to participate in the upcoming Piano Congress 2021 on: The art of piano making: “Past, Present & Future” WAS to be held in Warsaw, Poland on May 20-23 2021.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact us: contact@pianocongress.org or 00 48 729 670 305

Due to the worldwide pandemic, the Association of Polish Piano Tuners asked Europiano and the IAPBT to postpone the organization of Piano Congress 2021 by for one year, while emphasizing that after 20 months of organizing the congress we are ready to organize it.

COVID-19

In March 2020, as a result of the coronavirus epidemic, our original plans were ruined. President Europiano suggested shortening PianoCongress 2021 from 4 to 3 days, limiting the program, thanks to which it would be possible to reduce the cost of participation in the congress. Every week we know more and more about the effects of the epidemic in individual countries and the prospects of overcoming it. Despite the revision of the Congress program and the participation prices, participants and exhibitors have suspended all decisions related to PianoCongress 2021. There is no one to organize PianoCongress next year. 

In 2021, we will be in the middle of the second wave of the coronavirus epidemic and there may be such a situation that in May 2021 nobody will be able to come to Europe. Regardless of where the Piano Congress would be held. Therefore, taking into account the safety of participants, their life and health, the congress cannot be organized in 2021.
Therefore, at the meeting in July this year. in Warsaw, with a representative of Europiano and IAPBT, we applied for the postponement of the organization of Piano Congress 2022 by one year. Various events around the world are postponed not only from 2020, but also from 2021. Our conclusion follows a global trend.

Preparations for the Piano Congress 2022

After 20 months of organizing the congress and involving considerable costs related to the preparation of the congress, we pre-booked the hotel at the turn of June, 3 – 5, 2022. We are also in talks with NIFC to postpone events by one year.

We are waiting for the acceptance of our proposal to postpone the Piano Congress organization to 2022 by the authorities of Europiano and IAPBT authorized to make such decisions, i.e. the congress of delegates representing all member organizations.
