Coronavirus (Covid-19) Advisory for ISC 2020

Last Updated: 17.03.2020

There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic. Right now, medical professionals studying the Covid-19 virus are unable to accurately forecast the future behavior of the virus and its further impact, thus causing everyone all over the world anxiety.   

We at ISC High Performance are not only following the development closely, but have also set up a Covid-19 Task Force to respond to the crisis. Among others, we are exploring different alternatives if the pandemic were to worsen, affecting our ISC 2020 conference plans.  

We are still planning to host the conference and exhibition from June 21 – 25, and take the opportunity to thank our sponsors, exhibitors, partners and attendees for their continued support and trust in the ISC brand.

Online registration will open on March 19.

Our Cancellation Policy

In light of the ever-changing situation, we are offering our attendees as much flexibility and planning comfort as possible with our cancellation policy. Up until May 11 (39 days before the conference), you can request for a full refund on your conference pass. You can also contact us via our contact form. We will be happy to answer any questions you have.

Different terms and conditions apply to the exhibition and we ask exhibitors to contact exhibitor-support@isc-events.com.

We will continue to remain watchful and closely monitor the local situation in Germany, as well as globally, and advise you to use only trusted sources for the latest information on Covid-19:

Previous Update from 10.03.2020

In light of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) outbreak and spread, we would like to inform all attendees that we are monitoring the situation closely.

At this point we are optimistic and are preparing to host another successful conference and exhibition, which is scheduled to take place from June 21 – 25.

We are in close contact with Messe Frankfurt, the trade fair facility owners, who in return is in constant contact with the German health authorities and is implementing their recommendations and instructions accordingly. In addition, we are also closely following the declarations by the Robert Koch Institute (Germany’s public health institute) and World Health Organization (WHO).

Regardless of the current situation, we will be adopting the following precautionary measures at ISC 2020:

  1. Entrances, door handles, escalator handrails, elevator buttons, toilets, etc. will be disinfected multiple times a day.
  2. Courtesy of Messe Frankfurt, disinfectant dispensers will be positioned at exhibition grounds and buildings.

For your own safety we encourage you to already adopt the habit of washing your hands frequently and thoroughly with soap and water, if you need to sneeze or cough, use the crook of your arm and not openly into a room or into your hand, and avoid shaking hands.

In the event there are any new developments, we will update this page. If you have any questions, please write us.
