COVID-19

We understand there are concerns and questions around the novel corona virus (COVID-19) in relation to the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo and we would like to reassure you that the health and safety of our attendees, exhibitors, and staff are our priority. We are closely monitoring the situation and following the guidance of the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo will take place in Lugano Switzerland, on 21-22 October 2020. In order to cope with the particular situation caused by the novel corona virus, 3DBODY.TECH 2020 will be held as hybrid event, with real conference and exhibition taking place onsite in Lugano, and with added virtual content, online streaming and virtual online engagement. Attendees, speakers, exhibitors will be able to participate in person or online/remotely.

We believe attendees, speakers, exhibitors should be given maximal freedom to choose when and how to participate at 3DBODY.TECH 2020. We will accept requests for changes (upgrades, downgrades, virtual/onsite) until the latest possible date and without additional administrative fees. We will be also very flexible on proposals for presentations, speeches and on registrations of exhibitors.

As the date draws closer, we will be working with the venue, our contractors and regulators to assess risks and to implement protocols for the safety and well-being of all participants at the 3DBODY.TECH Conference & Expo. Please continue to check our website 3dbody.tech for updates as they develop. We look forward to a safe and successful event in October.
