Making you feel safe at ECOC 2020
The exhibition hall may look a little different this year as we adhere to the latest Government guidance with regards to Covid-19. Our priority is the health and safety of our visitors, exhibitors and all attendees. Below are just some of the steps we are taking to keep everyone safe at the show.
Sanitizing stations around the event
1.5m distance between each person as stipulated (By the Belgian Government) this may be subject to change
Face Masks provided in give away bags
Contactless Payments for catering areas – no cash
Temperature control at entrance
Thank you for your patience over the last few months. Due to the current circumstances regarding Covid-19 the decision has been taken by the ECOC Management Committee and ourselves to postpone the event from September to December, please see the official statement below;
The COVID-19 outbreak has presented everyone with unprecedented challenges and uncertainties. We have been closely monitoring the travel advice and public health guidelines issued through the official channels of the World Health Organization (WHO), the Government of Belgium, and Belgian public health agencies.
In light of uncertainties regarding international travel, in response to requests from local authorities, and in consultation with ECOC Management Committee we have decided to postpone ECOC 2020 to 6– 10 December 2020 (Exhibition dates 7-9) also in Brussels, Belgium.
By postponing ECOC 2020 we will significantly increase the possibility of a successful edition (in person !) of our exhibition and IMEC, our partner in organizing the conference. In light of this the conference has decided to postpone the paper submission deadline to 28 August, thus offering the possibility to complete the experiments which in many laboratories have come to a halt due to the corona crisis.
ECOC 2020, as a premier event worldwide in our field, will continue to provide you with a unique and high-level platform to present and exhibit your research results and products.
We will deliver further announcements with details concerning the event and registration via the website and via the social media.
