The Conference postponed to 2021 (Last updated: April 6, 2020)
Like so many others we were prepared for a lot, but not Covid-19. It breaks our hearts to deliver this message but after much consideration we’ve decided to postpone The Conference and The Festival to August 2021. Unthinkable just a month ago but today we choose this course to make sure that we do not jeopardize anyone’s health or our core organization Media Evolution. This time – the unknown is too uncertain to enter.
We have considered both online versions, smaller versions and hybrid versions and do believe there are plenty of good examples and tools to make it work, especially on a smaller scale. However, we will not move the production online because The Conference and The Festival are very much about gathering people in the physical world, and Malmö, our location, is a huge part of this. But! We will not close the door on organizing smaller events online during 2020.
As soon as we know, we will be back with more information about new dates for 2021, but like usual, The Conference will play out by the end of August. If we are to see a flipside with this new route it is time. Time to create something even better, time for changes, time for thought and time to build new relationships.
I bought a ticket, what do I do?
Your ticket will be just as valid in 2021 and if needed, you can change the name of the ticket up until the event takes place. It would truly mean the world to us if you would consider holding on to your ticket, but we understand that some of you cannot. If you need a refund, get in touch. and we’ll sort it out.
The Conference plays out in August, what if the restrictions are gone by then?
This could very well be the case and although we’d love to continue to wait and see, we don’t have the resources to handle a late stage cancellation which is why we’ve chosen to postpone the entire shebang instead of risking it all.
We will be back with more information soon. Subscribe to our newsletter to stay up to date.
We are grateful for your support and ask for your continued understanding.
