Fontstand International Typography Conference

May 15–16, 2020
Dublin, Ireland

We regret to announce that we have no other choice but to cancel the 2020 Fontstand Conference in Dublin.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread and the situation evolves we have no other choice but to announce that the 2020 Fontstand Conference in Dublin is cancelled.

Fontstand’s priority is to keep the delegates, speakers, and our partners safe, and to prevent the spread of the virus we have made the decision to cancel this years’ conference. We considered postponing it to a later date in 2020, however, with no clear outlook it is not responsible to move to a date when we can’t guarantee safety of the attendants.

We will be issuing full refund of all purchased tickets in the coming weeks.

We look forward to the 2021 edition of the conference, and we would love if you would continue your support in the future. Stay safe, and hope to see you next year!
