Following a thorough evaluation of all basic factors required to successfully operate another year of Prague Patchwork Meeting, we have decided not to proceed with hosting 2022. The pandemic situation appears to be worsening, many of our neighbouring countries moving back to the red zone. Even if we made entry contingent on full vaccination, we will be dependent on willingness to travel abroad and fill out forms, awailability of boosters etc. Since the very beginning, PPM has been an international event. A domestic only event is not sustainable in a small country as Czech Republic, unlike Germany, France or the UK. Increased costs related both to renting the venue and increased hygienic measures make it difficult to predict attendance, and entrance fees would not even cover the expenses related to the exibition, if we would keep the standard size and quality of the established PPM. While we did not take the decision lightly, we had to take financial considerations into account.
