The worldwide health crisis caused by the corona virus covid-19 requires more and more governments to intervene strongly. Measures taken include cancelling events, encouraging people to stay at home and cutting out non-essential travel.
Although the situation at the Seminar’s envisioned location São Paulo currently seems relatively manageable, an important part of the program consists of contributions from speakers from countries where travel is currently discouraged or even impossible. This situation is likely to deteriorate in the coming days.
In addition, we consider it important that every event organizer takes responsibility for the health of everyone involved, crew, participants and speakers. In these serious circumstances, the organizers of the Regional Seminar have decided to postpone the event.
