- Please keep in mind that dogs are not allowed on the entire EQUITANA fairground and thus cannot be brought to the congress center either.
- We ask all our participants to please switch off their mobile phones in the conference hall.
- The conference office is open for registration from 7.00 a.m. We recommend to arrive in due time, i.e. about one hour before the start of the conference, as there may be waiting times at the counters.
- A cloakroom is available on the ground floor of Messehaus-West (in close vicinity to the escalator to Congress Center West). Please note that there is no possibility to drop off coats or personal items at the congress center itself (1st floor).
