We are extremly sad to inform you that we have to cancel the awards ceremony and exhibition of the iF DESIGN AWARD 2020 in Berlin. The organizers of our partner event, the Berlin Design Week, have also had to cancel their event.
The coronavirus has dominated the headlines in the media since the end of last year and is now having an impact on the daily lives of many people worldwide. An unforeseeable but very large number of small companies is now facing a situation that threatens their existence. Countries and cities are shut down, travelling is almost impossible, social contacts should be reduced to the minimum. Luckily we can read first positive messages from China and South Korea where the numbers of new infections seem to shrink. Europe became the center right now and our German government prepared us to expect the peak in the coming weeks or months. So, postponing our events until June is still to risky, July and August are international summer holiday months. And after that, it’s simply too late.
It was incredibly difficult for all of us to make this decision, but an epidemic of this magnitude and the health and safety issues involved must, of course, take priority.
We look forward to meeting you again one day after overcoming this crisis and will be working hard on a very special iF awards ceremony in May 2021 at the Friedrichstadtpalast in Berlin!
