Here is a sad news but it is very important as it is one of the biggest events on European scene. Please if you have a chance post it on forums to inform as many modellers as possible.
Here is the official announcement. I did contact yesterday the organizers to confirm that this is not a fluke news but is real.
Dear Modeler Friends, Dear Visitors!
In recent weeks, due to the global spread of the Corona virus in many countries and the increasing risk of infection, based on information received from local and state public health agencies no major events, especially international ones are not recommended in the coming months.
The organizers of MosonShow, after consulting with - and in full alignment with - the Mayor's Office, decided about the cancellation of the XXIV. Mosonshow (April 25-26, 2020) show event.
XXIV. Mosonshow will be held on April 24-25, 2021!
Atmosphere of the Mosonmagyaróvár meetings was characterized by the cloudless joy of meeting long time not seen friends. This year, we do not see this feeling secured because old friends and old participants would not be able to attend the event due to the viral health situation.
Of course postponing the event to a later date remained as an option, but eventually this one was discarded in favor of the fluent execution of other events.
We could not postpone our decision further more because we do not want to charge the participants with unnecessary expenses (airline tickets, accommodation, etc.).
We look forward to understand our compulsion to deal with the infectious diseases affecting many countries!
We look forward to see you next year!
And here is the explanation for the decision:
We made our decision based on the following risk factors.
- international nature of the event (this year participant from 41 countries indicated that they plan to come)
- number of participants / visitors to the event on the weekend of the show
- the indoor nature of the event
- load of social facilities of the event
- physical contact is unavoidable due to the crowding at trade stands and the location of the competition
- paper-based objects and devices capable of carrying and transmitting the virus, which many people grasp by bare hands. (paper money, book, kit box . . .).
- high number of volunteers involved in the competition (about 150, jury, administration, speakers),
- The safety of the event is facilitated by a large number of students
- buy-sell takes place in the building of the gymnasium, which cannot be returned to 5-600 students without disinfection
- in the event of a problem, the health capacity of the city is insufficient to treat such a large army of visitors
This gives a little background to understanding the decision.
