Think About! 2020 Canceled

Published Mar 12 by Christina, Reading time: 2 Minutes

We heavy heartedly decided to cancel Think About! 2020

Although it is the right and reasonable decision considering the current situation with the Corona virus we are extremely sad that we have to share these news with you.

Many questions have been on our mind in the past few days. We followed the news and have been in touch with the public health department in Cologne regularly. The first people started reaching out to us with regard to whether the event is taking place. That is why we started to discuss how we would like to react and what that means for our conference.

Two aspects affected our decision:

  1. We take your health and safety very seriously and don’t want to put anyone at risk. Right now we need to rely on trusted sources like the Robert-Koch-Institute.
  2. Pulling off an event like the Think About! is a tremendous effort - measured in hours invested by the orga team and measured in money invested upfront for hotel, travel and so on. Since we are a small company we have to pay a lot of this upfront from our own pockets - many of the cost are not refundable from a certain point on.

Considering these two factors led us to the decision to cancel the Think About! 2020. As said, we are very sad and can’t put into words how we feel right now but we hope you understand the decision we've made.

All attendees that bought a ticket and all sponsors will be reimbursed entirely. We will reach out to those affected by this individually.

The good news are: Think About! will be back in 2021 and we are planning to continue with awesome meetups until then!

Stay healthy and safe, everyone <3
