In addition, there will be another 80 persons present at Inselhalle Lindau – a core steering group and service providers for data and event technology, video and support.

Preventive Measures

A hygiene concept will be drawn up for the conference, setting out measures to ensure it is held safely. The organizer has appointed a hygiene officer.

As far as it is possible, participants need to be either vaccinated or recovered on site; if it is not possible, they need to be tested daily. Proof of this must be brought in all three cases.
