ICAWC Brochure Release in 2021

To Our ICAWC Friends

We have made the extremely difficult decision to postpone this year’s ICAWC to 2021.

Even though October is still a few months away, it has become increasingly obvious that it would not be possible to host the conference safely in October and therefore feel that postponing is the right decision – we hope you all understand and agree.

Just a few weeks ago, planning was in full swing and the idea of postponing was unthinkable… but nobody could have predicted the way in which the world could change so suddenly..

The next ICAWC will now take place from the 5-7th October 2021 in Sofia.  Planning has begun and we look forward to making up for lost time and getting together again with the ICAWC family.
