Q:  Have you finalized the dates and location of the 2021 MATE World Championship?

A:  Not yet!  We are working to secure dates during the first week of August – again, in an effort to put more of a buffer between the event and the virus (and to allow more time for vaccinations).  We had hoped to lock in the dates and location by the end of February but need more time.  Thank you for your continued patience!
