Frequently asked question

Why is the DoKomi postponed?

Due to the current development of the spread of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, an implementation in May is fraught with serious uncertainties. According to experts, the likelihood that a ban on major events must be maintained until then in order to keep the epidemic down. And in our sense, your health is the most important thing and we all have to do our part to keep the infection curve low now.


What is the new date of DoKomi?

The new date of DoKomi is September 12th and 13th 2020!


Why was this date chosen?

The date is the only free weekend at Messe Düsseldorf that we can use. Numerous other trade fairs have also been postponed to the second half of the year, the schedule in Düsseldorf is accordingly tight with regard to hall occupancy and the CCD.

We very much regret that this date is only a week away from Connichi in Kassel. Unfortunately there was no alternative, but at least no other convention as far as we know coincides directly with this specific date.

We therefore ask for your understanding and forbearance in this exceptional situation in which we all find ourselves.


Will my already purchased ticket remain valid?
