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

SAFE Europe 2021 - Cancelled

As you are aware the next SAFE Europe Symposium & Exhibition was planned for 22-24th March 2021 in Hamburg, Germany, following the cancellation of the symposium in 2020 due to the emerging COVID-19 situation. No-one on the Committee thought that almost a year on, we would be in the same difficult situation.

Given the on-going epidemic, it is not viable to hold the SAFE Europe symposium in March 2021, in Hamburg, as planned. Therefore, the Committee has once again taken the difficult decision to cancel the event.

Fortunately, the committee have been able to secure the same venue for the 2022 event, and so are happy to be able to give you early notice of a date for your diaries. The SAFE Europe Symposium 2022 will be held at the H4 Hotel in Bergedorf (Hamburg), Germany, from 4-6th April 2022. We look forward to seeing as many of our colleagues and friends as possible at the event in 2022.

We will be in contact with you again soon, to share information regarding our virtual SAFE Europe Annual General Meeting and to share with you our plans for 2021.

In the meantime, if you would like to contact the Committee, please use or visit the SAFE Europe website at
