Can’t make the date 17. and 18. March? No problem. All sessions released by the speakers are also available as recordings after the event.
Will the event take place 100% on site?
We are planning firmly for an on-site event and on the basis of current developments this is realistic. But of course the option of a virtual event must always remain open. The situation is still dynamic and the requirements can change at any time and at short notice. Should it not be possible to hold the SMX Munich 2021 Edition safely on site, the event will be held virtually. Safety First!
What happens to my on-site ticket if SMX Munich is only virtual?
If it is not possible to hold the SMX Munich on site, all tickets will be converted into virtual tickets (livestream and recordings) and you will be refunded the difference.
What are you doing on site for my safety?
Together with Messe München and the responsible authorities, we have developed a tailor-made health and safety concept to ensure the success of SMX Munich despite the Covid 19 pandemic.
In order to carry out the SMX Munich at the ICM, the following protection goals must be achieved:
- Keeping a safe distance from other participants
- Comprehensive hygiene and health protection rules
- Traceability of contact persons according to the specifications of the Robert Koch Institute
Since we are a smaller B2B event compared to other events, we can implement the protection goals very well. We know you all by name and Messe München offers enough space to implement the distance regulation. We therefore have fewer challenges than larger events.
Will the SMX Munich be like always?
No, at the moment we are still expecting a special situation for 2021 due to the pandemic. We will offer fewer parallel running tracks and spread out a bit more in the premises. Nevertheless, the upper limit for a sold out event is of course much lower than before. There will be fewer international speakers than usual - nobody knows today if American speakers will be able to fly to Europe in March 2021. But you won't be disappointed by the confirmed speakers from around Europe and some of them will be brought to you via video conferencing at the ICM or your home office. Of course, we won't fall into each other's arms (even if we'd like to), but we'll be learning and networking together - both on site and virtually.
Are the workshops also hybrid events?
Yes, the workshops will take place on March 16th and are also hybrid events, which means you can also participate virtually. However, we do not provide recordings of the workshops for privacy reasons.
