Corona pandemic and the World Building Green Congress 2020

Due to current reason: For the organizer of the World Congress of Building Greening 2020, the health of visitors and the exhibitor is the top priority.

We are monitoring the current situation and are also in close contact with the responsible authorities in Berlin.

We ask for your understanding that, due to the daily changing circumstances, we cannot yet estimate whether the congress may take place on the scheduled date.

In order to achieve planning security for everyone involved, we hope to be able to make a final decision in early May 2020.

Stay healthy!
