Information from March, 19, 2020:
The last days were very exhausting for all of us. Our life situation has changed rapidly and in part drastically. Today we would like to inform you about the current state of affairs regarding the c/o pop Convention 2020.
The local authorities (State of NRW and City of Cologne) have imposed a ban of all events. However, this ban currently "only" applies until April 19, 2020. There are currently no guidelines or recommendations to cancel events after that date. This is a very difficult situation for us.
Our highest priority is the health of all participants and we would like to contribute - like other organizers - to containing the spread of the corona virus as much as possible.
Of course, we follow the reports and orders of the authorities and are also in close contact with our sponsors and partners. We are also working on possible options to postpone the c/o pop Convention 2020.
We are hoping to be able to give you detailed information about this as soon as possible.
In the meantime, we will show you projects and ideas of our sponsors, partners and local locations on our social media channels so that you can still fill this time of waiting with music and cultural content.
We wish you peaceful days and hope that you and your loved ones stay healthy.If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information from March, 11, 2020:
c/o pop Festival & Convention provide information on the latest developments concerning the corona virus COVID-19
It goes without saying that we are receiving an increasing number of enquiries about the status of planning and holding our event from April 22 to 26.
Therefore, we want to provide you with current information from now on!
As the organizers of the c/o pop Festival and the c/o pop Convention, we are aware of our responsibility towards our visitors, artists, speakers, partners, sponsors and staff, and we are taking this very seriously. For this reason, we are keeping in close contact and constant exchange with the local authorities and closely follow the communication of the Robert-Koch-Institute, the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) and the Federal Ministry of Health.
On March 10, the city of Cologne ordered that events with more than 1,000 expected visitors should be cancelled. The city of Cologne has also decided to initially set the ban until April 10, 2020 (Good Friday).
Based on the current state of information and the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and the city of Cologne, we therefore assume that the c/o pop Convention, the c/o pop Festival and c/o Ehrenfeld can take place as planned.
Just as it is said about citizens of the Rhineland, we are optimistic for the time being that we will be able to experience some great days together in these difficult times. If anything should change regarding the assessment and the guidelines of the responsible authorities relating to the organization of events in Cologne, you will find it out here immediately.
