SAFE Europe 27th Symposium & Exhibition Update – COVID-19

As you are aware the 27th SAFE Europe Symposium & Exhibition has been planned for 20-22nd April 2020 in Hamburg, Germany. The Committee has been monitoring the developments of the COVID-19 and following the advice of the World Health Organisation. As this health crisis has developed, we have been working to ensure an acceptable way forward with respect to the symposium.

Given the severe nature and widespread impact of the epidemic, we have regrettably decided the event cannot go ahead and must be cancelled.

All delegates will be given a full refund.

The hard work of the Committee and the in-country support we have received will not go to waste, as we will be holding SAFE Europe 2021 at the H4 Hotel in Bergedorf (Hamburg), Germany 22-24th March 2021.

At this time, please could I ask for your patience, while we issue all refunds. Once this is complete, we will turn our thoughts back to organising next years’ event.
