ADDRESSING THE “WHAT IF”

 

COVID-19 PLAN OF APPROACH

Great Challenges bring Great Opportunities

This is how we are tackling the situation when organizing conferences in the current COVID-19 era. There is no doubt, that no digital tools can replace meeting and knowing people face to face, no Virtual meeting will replace having a conversation over a drink at our networking reception with your peers. On the other hand, digital tools and virtual meetings nicely complement Live conferences. And this is why, we are going digital – to add extra value to our Live events, that will hopefully be back sooner than later.

We build our
events to be
hybrid

You cannot join the conference in person for unforeseen reasons? Then you can have your presentation virtually – with the highest quality standard, as we proved in the past and keep proving this through our periodic Virtual conferences.

What if the conference cannot be physically held because of travel restrictions and safety precautions of the COVID-19 situation? In that case, conferences will be postponed until they can be held physically, and on top of it – the Virtual conference will take place on original dates.
