Exclusive Site Visit

During the afternoon of Tuesday 4th May 2021, a limited number of conference attendees will have the opportunity to attend an exclusive site visit to the GAYA Platform in Lyon, France.

There is no extra charge to join a site visit, although places are limited and allocated to conference delegates on a first come first serve basis.

Therefore we should strongly suggest to book your place early to avoid disappointment.

We are doing everything to ensure that all its events go ahead as advertised. Like you, we are keen to get the meetings to happen and return to some form of normality. We are constantly tracking WHO updates, local government regulations and talking to our attendees wherever possible. Venues are chosen and procedures are adjusted in order to make the conferences possible.

But we do accept that these are exceptionally challenging times and the updates are very fast moving. As such, it may help you to understand how and why we arrive at decisions on moving ahead with any current event: One month before the meeting we again re-assess the situation specific to the individual summit, both local to the event and globally. We then take a decision as to the viability of holding the meeting as if it were happening the very next day. If it is possible to run on that basis, we will proceed. If not, we will be forced to take the decision to postpone the event to a later and better date.
