The health and safety of our attendees is of the utmost importance to Questex. We have been in constant communication with our key partners, sponsors and delegates and it has become clear that the most prudent action for the industry and the greater public health is for us to postpone the event. The hotel investment community has urged us to reschedule the event as soon as possible and the InterContinental and Pullman hotels in Berlin have been very accommodating.

“This was a very difficult decision as many in the community were asking us to proceed with the show. Ultimately there is no greater importance than the health and safety of our community members and that will always be the guiding principle that drives our business,” said Paul Miller, CEO of Questex.
