Future Floors, the Belgian flooring exhibition has been cancelled, due to a lack of exhibitors.
The show had been due to take part from 23-25 September.
'It is just a few months until the start of the fair and the number of participants is simply too low. If the fair took place visitors would not be offered the quality that they are used of Kortrijk Xpo. It is due to the fact that a substantial number of interested, potential participants have waited too long to decide whether they would be participating in the fair or not, that we now lack the time to set up a well-organised event,' says Nathalie Sandra, Kortrijk Xpo exhibition manager.
Sandra says that while companies were initially keen to take part, substantial economic changes have seen companies' enthusiasm cool off and a lot of companies have waited to see which way the wind blows. 'This is why we have made this extremely hard yet necessary decision to cancel Future Floors. Just to be clear: the organisation is still convinced that an initiative such as Future Floors can open up new markets. This is why Kortrijk Xpo does not rule out that the idea of the show being picked up again in the future.'
