Event regulations (most likely):

Current regulation is valid from August 20 2021 until revocation and may change by the time the ESG Bratislava 2021 Conference takes place. Therefore we will regularly publish updates on the Conference website.

We advise attendees to secure travel insurance that covers cancellation in case the epidemiological situation changes dramatically and an on-site event cannot take place.
