Events - The XXXVII IULTCS Congress takes place in Chengdu, China, from October 17-20, 2023.

The organisers of the 2023 IULTCS Congress, to be held in Chengdu in October, have announced that the virtual portal has been cancelled for the event and attendance will be in-person only, writes ILM.

The number of registrants for the virtual conference has been considerably lower than anticipated and does not justify the cost and resources needed for the online component of the event.

Instead, the organisers will reallocate these resources to better support the on-site congress and the entire event will be recorded and uploaded to the conference website for those who are unable to attend in-person.

The organisers said: “We have now dedicated our efforts to ensure an outstanding in-person experience during the physical gathering of the congress, which will take place as scheduled, and are committed to providing a platform that includes Heidemann Lecture, oral presentations, speed oral session, poster showcase, networking opportunities and lab visits, which encourages collaboration, learning and meaningful interactions among all attendees.

“We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your understanding. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to all participants for their continued enthusiasm and commitment to the IULTCS Congress. We look forward to welcoming you in person, as we come together to celebrate the innovations in leather technology and chemistry.”
