22.10. - 23.10.2020, Park Inn by Radisson Köln City West
Regulatory Changes and Risk Assessment for Intentionally added Microplastics
You are asking yourself, whether you will be able to travel this autumn and whether to book this conference right now?
We all wish to go back to normal and as of June 2020 we have been able to implement on-site meetings, here in Germany. However, our social responsibility and the health of our customers, employees and speakers are of the utmost importance for us, which is why we closely monitor the developments and comply with the current recommendations of the authorities. That is why we guarantee that you can rebook all events booked with us at any time and free of charge - this way you maintain full flexibility with your planning! If the circumstances do not allow for an on-site meeting later this year, we will change this conference into a virtual meeting. We promise, that we will inform you about any developments in due course!
