Health & Safety
Online Educa Berlin 2021 is returning to the Hotel InterContinental for a live, in-person conference and exhibition. Safety for all participants, security and your health are a priority at OEB.
We will continue to evaluate and expand our health & safety protocols as social distancing and hygiene rules and medical recommendations evolve. We will update this page regularly as national and local measures change, so that you will know what to expect when you arrive in Berlin for OEB. Additional or modified protocols will be announced here and registered participants will be informed before the event via email as well.
Due to constant changes in the regulations for travellers coming to Germany from different countries, depending on local circumstances that may affect any new ruling for entering Germany, we advise everyone to keep up to date with the latest travel information and regulations for the countries you are travelling from, transiting via and also for Germany.
The link for Germany’s travel rules can be found here and is constantly updated, depending on the latest developments of the pandemic: https://www.einreiseanmeldung.de.
We have been adapting our plans based on Germany's strict laws for conferences and exhibitions in order to ensure that OEB will continue to help you make the connections you need. Some of the protective precautions that are put in place, in close cooperation with our venue, include:
We anticipate that proof of a positive antibody test or proof of vaccination must be provided and that all participants must wear a FFP2 mask. We will provide support to access health services and medical aid if needed. All participants are required to agree to adhere to any and all protocols we put in place.
Rooms and Meeting Spaces
We will follow appropriate guidelines and set up rooms and chairs to allow Social Distancing if required. All participants will be asked to follow Social Distancing rules.
