Release from April 16. 2020:
We are all going through hard times at the moment. The consequences of the coronavirus have an impact on the entire global economy and result in an almost complete standstill of many industries. One of these industries is the meeting and event industry, in which our company has firmly established itself over the past 13 years.
The exit restrictions, bans on events, travel warnings and all other consequences of the rapid spread of the coronavirus resulted in a cancellation or a rescheduling of almost every event since March 2020. The few events that took place occurred with significantly fewer participants.
Like all brokers and booking platforms MICE access is financed from commissions, which are based on a percentage of the sales of the events arranged. If no events take place or the sales of the booked events are reduced significantly, our company earns little or no money.
In addition, our hotel and venue partners themselves fear and fight for their economic survival and existence due to the Corona Crisis as well. The needs of the service providers are obviously so great that they can no longer pay our outstanding claims or can only pay them very late.
It is with great regret that we have to inform you today that the above reasons led to an inability to pay for the MICE access GmbH at very short notice. As a result of the inability to pay, the management of MICE access GmbH has filed for bankruptcy at the district court in Norderstedt.
Many other companies and livelihoods on the part of our distribution partners depend on the availability of our technical solutions. We very much hope that regulations ensuring the continued existence of our technical solutions in the market will be put in place as soon as possible in order to offer a secure future to the parties depending on those.
(CEO MICE access GmbH)
