Preparations for KONTEC in 2021 are in full swing
Addendum on COVID-19, October 2020
Dear customers, speakers and exhibitors,
When we started into the year 2020, with many new ideas and smart digital changes, COVID-19 did not have the shape on the slip of paper. The development that followed in spring 2020 was certainly an unpleasant surprise for all of us.
Now we are doing everything we can to ensure a secure presence event in August 2021. This KONTEC will be different than expected. Nevertheless, it can take place - as of October 2020 - with all its usual components.
At KONTEC 2021 we will try out a lot. This is shown by the many innovations mentioned below. Now there will be more unusual things, for which we will prepare as best as possible. You will find some of them in our News.
For the small anniversary - the 15th KONTEC - many things will change. KONTEC has been on the market for more than 30 years now, focusing on the disposal of radioactive waste from the operation and decommissioning of nuclear facilities and equipment. This is a great development which we are continuing in terms of content and technology.
The 15th KONTEC becomes smarter & more digital. For the speakers, the exhibitors and for the participants.
And this is what you can expect at KONTEC 2021
- 15th Status Report of the BMBF "Decommissioning and dismantling of nuclear facilities
- More than 100 lectures, keynotes and poster presentations
- Top-class speakers from industry, research and federal societies
- A unique platform for networking and information exchange at all levels
- Exhibitors and participants from Germany, Europe, USA and Asia
with the following new features:
- New and simplified procedure for technical lecture submissions
- New procedure for space bookings in the trade exhibition
- New stand construction company
- New ticket ordering system
- New lounge area
- New photographer
- New... Wait! This KONTEC traditionally takes place at the ICD in Dresden.
We stay true to the ICD of the Maritim im Dresden - because everything fits. Even the wonderful view on the Elbe river. Thanks to the full-sided window front towards the river, daylight will accompany the symposium on all levels. Our new contractual partner in exhibition stand construction, cubicworx, enables our exhibitors to use a digital ordering procedure and the ticketing will also be digitalised - for quick confirmations and to ensure the fastest possible check-in. We are very pleased that Dimitri Reimer, member of the FFA e.V., will capture KONTEC on pictures.
Since 2003 the biennial symposium has grown steadily by more than 10% at each event. The interplay of top-class technical presentations and a broad technical exhibition has proved its worth, since 2013 we have exceeded the magic number of 1,000 participants.
At this point we would like to thank again 1,273 visitors, 111 speakers and 86 exhibitors who have contributed to KONTEC 2019.
The one or other surprise is still in preparation. You are curious? So are we! ... and we would be pleased if you too would be part of the anniversary and make the 15th KONTEC something very special again.
