As announced earlier, we take the Corona pandemic quite seriously. Back in March 2020 TROOPERS20 was one of the very first events in Germany that had to be canceled due to the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic. Over two years later, we would have been pleased to announce a TROOPERS22 without any Corona limitations. Unfortunately the pandemic still influences our world more than most of us could imagine two years ago. Even though for TROOPERS22 we chose a date in summer, infection numbers are not as low as we hoped and we still have quite a dynamic situation. We want to offer a high level of infection protection for all people at TROOPERS and offer a safe environment for everyone. Thus, we decided to perform TROOPERS22 as a 3G event.
In order to access the venue (Trainings as well as Main Conference and Round Tables) we will ask for a vaccination certificate or a proof of recovery. For everyone who cannot or doesn’t want to provide such a proof, we offer free quick tests procedures at the entrance (trainings, as well as conference).
We also decided to have a mandatory face mask policy for all indoor areas whenever possible. This also includes the trainings. Trainers and Speakers are exempt from this rule while giving a talk or training. Our new venue offers a lot of space and a very nice outer area which will also be available for all meals. The weather forecast looks awesome for the conference days and thus we will have a lot of additional space for intense face-to-face conversations outside.
The conference venue will provide plenty of space for individual distance needs. Inside the lecture halls, we will have seating with distance and at the same time offer areas where people can group together at one’s own discretion.
For everyone on-site we will provide a mechanism to indicate your own “comfort zone”. In other words: Other people can recognize if you are fine with usual everyday distance or if you want other people to keep additional distance.
TROOPERS is about meeting and communicating with other people. We are happy that we finally can have such an event with all of you again. We hoped we would be in a situation where we could have a TROOPERS event with less hygiene restrictions. At the same time we are sure TROOPERS22 will be an awesome and memorable event.
We’re looking forward to meeting all of you!
