Ladies and Gentlemen,
When we launched the International Festival of Independent Watch Brands AuroChronos project in 2017, time was moving a little slower for all of us. Unfortunately, after two years of pandemic hiatus, Covid is still a valid topic of discussions. However, the pandemic is not the only aspect of the uncertainty-filled autumn. It has been accompanied by other problems that, among other things, do not allow people to make 100% plans for travel, especially abroad. Additional global economic effects resulting from the geopolitical situation have made our project impossible to carry out at the moment.
With the objective of ensuring, as we have done so far, the highest standards at the Festival, and to avoid transferring the rapidly increasing costs onto exhibitors and visitors, together with our partners and in consultation with the exhibitors, we have taken the decision not to hold the Festival in 2022.
We would like to thank you for your interest and trust, and we very much regret that we were unable to fulfil our promise to meet again in Lodz this year.
All exhibitors will additionally receive an email with the following information in the coming days. They will also receive a full refund of their advance payments.
We believe that the geopolitical and health situation in the world will allow us to organise the Festival in the years to come and to give you the opportunity to meet the wonderful makers of exceptional timepieces.
Thank you again for your support and understanding.
Maciej Mazurkiewicz, Paweł Zalewski
and the whole AuroChronos Team
