Bern - Switzerland

COVID-19 Rules & Regulations

We closely work with the location host to ensure a safe, inclusive and healthy environment for everyone involved.

Also for us as conference organizers, these are challenging times. We need to adapt to "the new normal" and change the way we run Experts Live this year. We will ensure
the seats are moved apart in the session rooms, that there's hand sanitizer available at every sponsor stand, as well as disinfection points in all session rooms. Today, masks are not mandatory in public spaces in Bern, however, we do provide masks voluntarily at the registration desk.

Together, we will follow the rules & recommendations by the Federal Office of Public Health and ask everyone involved to respect the rules. People arriving in Switzerland from certain countries and areas are required to go into quarantine, and therefore we
unfortunately cannot welcome attendees who visit the following countries within 10 days prior to the conference: The list of these countries and areas was updated on 14 September 2020.
