Mineral and Gem 2020 will not take place!
As we suspected and unfortunately, this year, the international stock exchange for minerals, gems, jewelry, fossils and meteorites of Sainte-Marie-aux-Mines, "Mineral & Gem" will not take place .
Here is the official press release from the event organizer:
Dear exhibitors, partners, visitors and friends,
As we promised, we are giving you new information for the long-awaited event. Following the speech by Prime Minister Édouard Philippe, Tuesday, April 28, and at the Board of Directors of the SPL EVA, meeting on Thursday, April 30, we announce with great pain the cancellation of the international fair Mineral & Gem 2020.
Health is paramount and a priority, the COVID-19 epidemic is not yet contained and everyone at their level must block it. We choose risk 0 for our visitors, exhibitors, partners, service providers, associations, volunteers and staff. So we decided not to consider postponing, to cancel Mineral & Gem altogether in 2020 and to prepare an even more extraordinary edition in 2021.
Visitors: if you have already purchased tickets for the 2020 edition, you will be contacted by one of our employees who will offer you reimbursement or extension of validity terms.
In this incredible situation, we would like to show you our gratitude for your many support messages on our social networks, e-mail ...
We invite you to meet in 2021, from June 24 to 27, for an exceptional Sainte-Marie Mineral & Gem Show.
In the meantime, take care of yourself and your loved ones.
