COVID-19 Protection Concept 

The health and safety of our participants, speakers, exhibitors and employees are our top priority. In order to ensure that participants feel comfortable on site, IMK, in close consultation with the Congress Centre Kursaal Interlaken, has drawn up a protection concept that complies with the specifications of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and has arranged for the measures listed in the protection concept to be implemented.

Hygiene masks and hand disinfectants will be provided for all persons present. In addition, the prescribed safety distance should be maintained wherever possible. All participants are also requested to register for the Joint Annual Meeting 2020 in advance and to install the official SwissCovid App from the App Store or the Google Play Store on their smartphones.

We kindly ask you to read the protection concept on our website. The protection concept is constantly updated to the latest status.
