Sponsorship & Table Top Opportunities
Due to the current situation linked to the COVID-19 crises, PDA Europe has decided to exceptionally propose flexible sponsorship options in case this year’s event would be cancelled:
- Transferring your company’s sponsorship/table top reservation to 2021.
- Cancelling your company’s table top and get a refund limited to the amount paid by the company. However a fee of 100 EUR will be charged to cover administrative and banking costs.
Getting a refund of a certain percentage for sponsorships including advertising opportunities. The percentage will depend on the exposure already received.
The PDA Europe Board of Directors, Conference Committee and Secretariat continue to monitor the rapidly changing situation related to the spread of COVID-19. Our main priority is the health and safety of our attendees and industry. This unprecedented situation is changing daily so we remain watchful. At this time, trying to predict the situation in November with certainty is a futile exercise. Therefore, we remain focused on delivering a beneficial conference for the Polyurea industry.
At present, PDA Europe has not made plans to cancel or postpone the event. If there are any changes to the event schedule, we will provide information about rescheduling options that may be available and/or other specific details. With this in mind, we hope you will continue to plan for the PDA Europe Annual Conference & Exhibition as usual. We look forward to welcoming you to Porto in November and wish you, and your families good health and resilience in the months to come.
As the situation evolves, we will continue to update and provide necessary information through our website and regular mailings. Please do not hesitate to contact us with specific questions about our upcoming event.
