Future Floors event cancelled

Home News Future Floors event cancelled

Future Floors, the trade fair for the entire floor sector, was supposed to take place from September 23-25 in Kortrijk Xpo. The organisation regrets to inform you that this event is cancelled. It is just a few months until the start of the fair and the number of participants is simply too low. If the fair took place nonetheless, the visitors would not be offered the quality that they are used of Kortrijk Xpo. It is due to the fact that a substantial number of interested, potential participants have waited too long to decide whether they would be participating in the fair or not, that we now lack the time to set up a well-organised event. 

Exhibition manager Nathalie Sandra: “Between the positive result of our research with regards to the feasibility of Future Floors and the start of the sale in October 2011, the economic future perspective has changed substantially. Due to a whole range of external factors the initial enthusiasm has cooled off and a lot of companies have waited to see which way the wind blows. We understand their point of view, but we do not want to raise the wrong expectations both towards our participants as well as towards the visitors. This is why we have made this extremely hard yet necessary decision to cancel Future Floors.”

“Just to be clear: the organisation is still convinced that an initiative such as Future Floors can open up new markets. This is why Kortrijk Xpo does not rule out that the idea of the trade fair is picked up again in the future!
