Pharma Congress 2020 - new date: 15/16 September 2020


Because of the increasing spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) also in Germany, the German Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn has recommended to cancel events with more than 1,000 participants. Armin Laschet, the Prime Minister of the most affected state by the virus, North Rhine-Westphalia, has also agreed to this demand. According to the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), further cases, infection chains and outbreaks must also be expected in Germany. For this reason, the RKI recommends in its "General Principles of Risk Assessment and Recommended Action for Major Events" that mass events be cancelled, postponed or reorganized to take into account the health security of the population, which has a clear priority.

Following this assessment of the current developments and the recommendations of the Federal Minister of Health, the Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia and the RKI, CONCEPT HEIDELBERG, organiser of the Pharma Congress Production & Technology, has decided to postpone the event planned for 24th/25th March in the Crowne Plaza Düsseldorf/Neuss. The postponement is the result of a careful consideration. "The health of congress participants, exhibitors and speakers has absolute priority," say Dr Robert Eicher and Dr Andreas Mangel, the two Operations Directors at CONCEPT HEIDELBERG responsible for the Pharma Congress. "But with this alternative date we are offering everyone a good alternative to make the congress a success again.
