SEPAWA® CONGRESS 2020 – June Update COVID-19

24. June 2020


The 67th SEPAWA® CONGRESS starts in about 4 months from 28 – 30 October 2020 in Berlin. For many exhibitors and visitors, now is the time for preparations. Some are wondering what implications the Corona crisis has for the event.

Recently the German federal government has extended the ban for big events until 24th of October. The individual federal countries can adapt the rules according to the individual situation. For the time being, the currently valid regulation from the Berlin senate can be found here.

According to these regulations, events of up to 1,000 visitors on the floor simultaneously can already take place from October 1, 2020. After October 24, no regulations have been issued yet, but we are confident that further easing of the restrictions will come. As all participants are registered, full control of the numbers is always guaranteed. Therefore, the SEPAWA® CONGRESS 2020 is scheduled as originally planned.

The board and organizers are of course considering all possible scenarios and have included all important safety standards in our planning.

In addition to the standard measures, such as disinfectants and the provision of mouth and nose protection masks, we are planning further precautions to protect the health and planning security of all participants.

Due to the spacious premises in the Estrel Congress Center, we are in the comfortable position to react to any possible governmental rules of distance and conduct with additional space and to adapt the event accordingly. We have already created floorplans including a second available hall, so that ample space for visitors and exhibitors alike can be provided. In the event that it is required by the authorities, it is also possible to track contact persons at any time through the registration of all participants.

Together with the Estrel congress management, we are currently working out a hygiene concept with various scenarios and seating and conference rooms, which will enable us to implement all potential safety standards and the best possible protection and to allow for social distancing in the conference rooms. These health precautions have led us to the decision to suspend the popular after event and get-together in its previous form this year.

With all these considerations and forward planning, we are of course subject to the further development of the Corona crisis. We all trust that the situation will again have eased considerably in four months’ time and that further steps towards normality will have been taken. Our team will react quickly and flexibly to all developments.
We can assure all SEPAWA® friends that the maximum of health safety for all visitors is of paramount importance to us. We are convinced that the 67th SEPAWA® CONGRESS will also be the new beginning of the industry in terms of personal communication and customer loyalty.

With that in mind: Back to the future: “Meet your Business in Berlin 2020”

Your SEPAWA® Team
