37th International A+A Congress 2021 in hybrid format

The 37th International A+A Congress will take place between 26–29 October 2021 for the first time as a congress with streamed hybrid events. The Congress will run in parallel to the A+A World-Leading Trade Fair for Safety and Health in Düsseldorf. The organisation of the congress is particularly challenging for the Federal Association for Occupational Safety and Health (Basi). Dr Christian Felten, Managing Director of Basi: ‘Visitors can expect a more compact format, but streaming the event means that more people can take part than has been possible with face-to-face congresses in previous years.’
