FEIBP’s 10 Reasons to Attend the European Brushware Federation Congress

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 62nd FEIBP Congress had to be postponed twice. After three years, with COVID-19 measures and travel restrictions lifted, the European brushware industry is ready again for a physical congress. The return in-person event will be held for the first time, September 21-23, at the Hotel Grandior, Prague, Czech Republic.

Regular participants of the annual FEIBP Congress for European brushware manufacturers appreciate the event as a great opportunity to meet fellow manufacturers, contact suppliers and receive up-to-date information on our industry. There are brushmakers in the Czech Republic, but other countries in Central Europe as well, who will be invited to join us at the congress to get acquainted with the FEIBP and its activities.

All arrangements have been completed and a full three-day program has been established with Keynote Speakers on “Succession Management” and “Sustainability” along with the traditional working group sessions and the Innovation Award competition. In preparation for the event the FEIBP has released 10 reasons to attend the Congress:
