IULTCS News - Cancellation of Virtual Portal in 2023 IULTCS Congress

The Organizing Committee of the 37th International Union of Leather Technologists and Chemists Societies (IULTCS) Congress is announcing, with sincere consideration, the cancellation of the virtual portal of the IULTCS Congress in Chengdu, which was originally alongside the on-site conference.

After a meticulous analysis of the registration data, we have noted that the number of registrants for the virtual conference has been considerably lower than anticipated. The paramount objective of our conference has consistently been to provide a dynamic and engaging platform for knowledge sharing and networking. Given the limited interest demonstrated by online registrants, we have determined that allocating quite some resources and cost to manage the virtual component would not be justified. Consequently, we will reallocate these resources to enhance the organization of an immersive on-site congress.

The Organizing Committee will promptly reach out to the registrants who have already registered for the virtual conference. Meanwhile, to those who are unable to attend the in-person conference, the entire conference proceedings will be recorded and uploaded to the conference website (https://lnkd.in/dka3J3SB) after the IULTCS Congress concludes.

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 visiting, which encourages collaboration, learning, and meaningful interactions among all attendees.

We apologize 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.
