Frequently Asked Questions: Workshops
What should I consider about the covid-19 situation?
Here we would like to share some information about the covid-19 situation.
When you travel, measures and rules implemented by governments, states, districts, travel companies, institutions, and NIPAI may change before and during the event, due to the pandemic. When you book your trip, please make sure to get travel insurance which allows you to rebook or cancel with a refund for your tickets. Please consider quarantine rules if necessary. We will work very hard to make the schedule happen the way we have it organized right now - that is in our interest. However, we cannot guarantee that the schedule will happen as planned, due to covid-19, nor compensate for any financial loss from travelling or quarantine or any resulting loss of funds.
We absolutely don't want to cancel our events and we will do everything possible to make the event happen. We put a lot of effort into it and are eager to be with all of you. Still, we are dependent on how the pandemic develops, so in the event, we would not be able to hold the event, we will re-schedule it to other dates, an alternative event or activity can be suggested, or alternative products to the same or higher value may be offered. Please note that we can't compensate for travel or lost funds for accommodation etc.
How to get information on the latest NIPAI news and measures:
If there is an update, we will inform all of you via the website and/or email about the latest developments, before and during the event.
Thank you for being with us and supporting us during this challenging time by understanding the measures we have to consider.
What is the deadline for application?
