Co-organised by VGCT (the German Tannery Chemists and Technicians Association) and FILK (the Freiberg based Research Institute for Leather and Plastic Sheeting), the event will offer once again the possibility for experts and specialists from the tanning industry to meet and network with colleagues.

The speakers from research institutes, the chemical industry and mechanical engineering companies have already submitted lectures. Those who wish to present new ideas, knowledge or applications in the field of tanning techniques or any other related field, are invited to submit their abstracts by February 25.

The organisers warn that a festival is due to take place in Freiberg during the same week and an early accommodation booking is advised.
