The 67th SEPAWA® CONGRESS starts in about 5 1/2 months from 28 – 30 October 2020 in Berlin. For many exhibitors and visitors, now is preparation time. Some are wondering what implications the Corona crisis has for the event.
We, the board and organizers, are of course busy 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. State-of-the-art exhaust air systems and generous premises guarantee an optimal air exchange and fresh air supply.
Together with the Estrel congress management, we are currently proactively working out a hygiene concept with various scenarios and seating and hall plans, which will enable us to implement potential extended safety standards and the best possible protection against infection in the short term and to allow for prescribed “social distancing”.
These health precautions have led us to the decision to suspend the popular After Event and Get-Together in its previous form this year. We will endeavor to work out alternatives for the Get-Together as soon as possible.
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 have eased considerably in six months’ time and that further steps towards normality will have been taken. Our active and imaginative 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”
So long! We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
Your SEPAWA® Team
