On July 6., 2020, through electronic voting, we invited all full members of our section to vote on the postponement of the date of the event of the FCI European Dog Show, Celje (EDS 2020), from 8. to 11. October 2020 for the year 2021-or from 25. to 28. May or from 26. to 29. May 2021.
Of the 42 members, with the right to vote, 24. of them voted for all 24 of them to confirm the proposal that the Cynological Association of Slovenia is organizing the EDS 2020 event at the end of May 2021. This is how the EDS 2020 event will be organized either from 25. to 28. May or from 26. to 29. May 2021.
The second part of the vote was the postponement of the FCI General Assembly European Section 2020 on the same day as the FCI General Assembly European Section 2021 will be organized in Budapest in 2021
The results of the vote were as follows, 23 members voted for, 1 member voted against. This is how the FCI General Assembly will be organized in Budapest in May 2021, just before the regular general assembly 2021.
On behalf of the entire FCI European section, I thank all members for their support in these difficult times. We are pleased that in some members the state of kinology is slowly waking up again, however, we can expect it to last a while before the situation is completely normalized.
With nice greetings and take care of yourself!
President of the FCI European Section
The European Dog Show is back in Slovenia for 2020, ten years after the previous event of this kind and held at the same venue the Celje showground, one of the largest in Slovenia.
The Cynological Association of Slovenia is the organizer of this important event in the calendar of the FCI in 2020. According to our experience from the last event of this type and experience of other shows, we are expecting more than 10.000 dogs and their owners at this 4 day event in October 2020.
The expected amount of visitors is estimated at 3000 a day from all over the world.
The show will be supported by media coverage and our International Media Partners will be OUR DOGS who we worked with back in 2010.
The President of the Kennel Club of Slovenia is the well known all round judge Mr Stefan Sinko, a vastly experienced person on the dog show scene.
