Statement on the Coronavirus | 05.03.2020

It is with a heavy heart that we have to announce today that the DATA festival will not take place from 17.03 – 19.03.2020 as originally planned. The new date will be from 14.09 – 16.09.2020.

Our entire team has closely followed the developments around the coronavirus (Covid-19) and the measures and updates of the official authorities and organisations (Robert Koch Institute – Federal Government – Foreign Office – WHO). These include comprehensive measures to ensure health safety when events are organised. These include fever-measuring stations at all entrances, as well as the implementation of the measure not to admit participants from risk areas and to refuse access to events to participants who have had contact with people from risk areas. This would result in an extensive check of all participants.

Our mission and vision of the DATA festival is to provide an environment in a relaxed festival atmosphere. In which networking and exchange with Data & AI experts is the top priority. As a team, we can no longer guarantee our quality standard at the current level and do not want to have to turn anyone away at the entrance. The safety and health of our employees, partners, customers and participants at our DATA festival are our top priority. We can guarantee you that this was not an easy decision and hope you will understand and continue to support the spirit of the DATA festival.

Everyone involved (participants, partners and employees) are made aware of the situation and options in separate mailings and personal meetings.

Our #DATAfestivalCrew hopes to see you in September 2020.
