THE L-DAY CAMPAIGN
Information about when we will be able to organise events is vitally important. The goal of the L-DAY campaign is to share information from all over the world, helping colleagues plan their crisis exit. We want L-DAY to become a unique benchmark for different politics that are shaping the fate of our industry.
In order to provide the most objective answer to the aforementioned question, we are asking international meetings industry experts, influencers, associations and all Kongres Magazine readers to answer three simple questions:
Q: When will your country allow events for up to 100 people?
May 4 marked the start of substantial easing of the social distancing measures that have been in place in Iceland since March 16, gatherings of up to 50 people are now allowed. From May 25 and onwards gatherings of up to 100 People will be permitted but it must also be ensured that at a distance of at least two (2) meters is maintained between individuals. Harpa Conference Centre has opened up for meetings and conferences. With regards to current restrictions.
Q: When will your country allow events without restrictions = L-DAY?
No decisions have been made about when we’ll be back to normal. Restrictions will be gradually lifted over the next months and will be under continuous review.
Q: When are you planning your first live event?
There are still few international events planned in Reykjavík in August. From June 15, the 14-day quarantine will not be mandatory for passengers arriving at Keflavík International Airport. Instead, tourists and Icelandic residents entering the country will be given the option of being screened for the novel coronavirus. That gives us hope that some of the events planned for this fall and early winter can still take place.
