2021 International in Torre del Mar, Spain


XVII International Meeting of Antique Iron Collectors, 2021 * CANCELLED

May 7, 2020
Dear Collector Friends of old flat Irons,

Currently we have a great world problem with the coronavirus that has changed the way of life.
I hope that all of you are in good health, following the government regulations to avoid being one of the victims, the elderly are in the front row of this virus and the Collectors we are almost all older people but not finished so we have to resist this coronavirus continue in our confinement to avoid further contagion, we live a silent war in front of an invisible enemy but leaving many casualties, no bombs or shots to do so much damage to the population of our planet .... how a simple virus can have so much destructive power ....?

I am optimistic, but it will take some time to recover normality, to live like before, not only in Spain, but also in all corners of the 5 continents.
For this reason and since no one knows what will happen to the world economy, the recovery will take place but it will be slow, I want to inform you that I, Pierre Lachnowicz, as the person in charge of the next World Meeting of the Collectors of Ancient Plates of 2021 in Torre del Mar (Malaga) I have stopped preparing for the event. 
I will wait some time looking closely at the recovery of the World economy, mainly the recovery of international flights, the new rules for hotels, restaurants, tourism in general, the beach, if the coronavirus does not come back next winter, etc ... there are many essential uncertainties.
Once normality is recovered or almost, I will reflect on the way forward ..... keep the date (I see it difficult), change the date for a year later (very likely) or total cancellation of the event (I do not want that) .

I am optimistic but I ask all of you for your opinion, your support, a comment, a criticism too, all united without borders.

To reassure all the Collectors, our region "La Axarquía" ( Costa del Sol) is formed by about 31 municipalities and about 220,000 permanent inhabitants without adding visitors, we have had since the beginning of the coronavirus (about 2 months) only 150 cases with 10 deaths (it is relatively little if we compare), all of Andalusia is quite free of the coronavirus.

By entering this pages you can get to know about our region.
