COVID-19 – IMPORTANT INFORMATION
- Up to 5 delegates from EUROPUR and/or EURO-MOULDERS member organisation can attend the conference. Speakers from member companies are not counted in the quota. If your company is member of both EUROPUR and EURO-MOULDERS that's up to 10 delegates. Therefore, please coordinate internally before registering.
- We are, for the moment, reserving participation to the event to members and a few guests.
The issue is that we do not know which conditions will apply to conferences & events in the Netherlands in November. We are currently opening registrations assuming that with progress of vaccination restrictions will be rather limited.
However, should the situation change and should strict limits to participation to events be imposed in November, we may have to revise the number of allowed participants per company, making best effort to ensure that all members organisations can send at least a few delegates and that active participants in working groups are given a chance to attend. Therefore, by registering to the conference you specifically accept that we may revise the number of allowed participants per company if decisions of Dutch authorities require it.
We thank you for your understanding.
