The COVID-19 pandemic turmoil is not subsiding. It is actually fairing quite well despite the claims of the government authorities that the situation is improving and despite safety measures restricting our liberty and freedoms being eased. There is also talk that another breakout of the pandemic is expected in the autumn. It seems we really do have to take this into account.
Given these circumstances, as well as the insecurity regarding what the future holds in store we have decided that this year’s RhinoForum 2020 will be held online. This is an unprecedented situation. In fact, since World War II, this is also the first year ever when the opening of the new season at the Metropolitan Opera in New York and many other events will be postponed.
This year, the RhinoForum 2020 program, that most likely you have already acquainted yourselves with, will be held in such a way that you can listen to and watch all our speakers from the comfort of their and your homes. This is certainly a challenge for us, but we will do everything in our power to make this year’s RhinoForum a truly special and unforgettable event.
Perhaps only our long-standing promotional motto “THE PLACE TO BE THIS AUTUMN” needs to be modified to “THE EVENT NOT TO BE MISSED ONLINE”
We will keep you posted on the developments.
