Hybrid Conference &
Hygiene Measures



THE INTERNATIONAL PHP CONFERENCE TEAM IS LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!

Every year in October, International PHP Conference Munich is the meeting point for PHP and web enthusiasts! This year, too, we look forward to meeting you again!

This year International PHP Conference Conference will take place under very special conditions. Even though International PHP Conference is by no means a small conference, it is not what politicians call a “big event”. So things are looking good.

Together with the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre, we will of course observe the necessary hygiene and distancing measures. That is also why we are taking particular care to limit the number of attendees.

Therefore as an additional option we have created a hybrid concept: you can “attend” the conference on site or remotely from your home or office. All lectures and workshops will be streamed live using professional video technology.

As you can see – thanks to the innovative program and the numerous networking opportunities, this year’s International PHP Conference Munich will once again provide the ideal setting for your continued development, whether you’re on site in Munich or attending digitally – the choice is yours!

International PHP Conference in times of Corona:
How can this work?

First of all: It does work! Together with hygiene experts and in cooperation with the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre, a detailed concept has been developed for International PHP Conference to make your conference participation as safe and enjoyable as possible.

The Holiday Inn Munich City Centre supports this process with special expertise it possesses as a member of the internationally connected premium hotel family Holiday Inn.

The following measures apply to International PHP Conference Munich 2020 and will, if necessary, adjusted in accordance with official requirements:

Hygiene Measures

All contact surfaces of the conference hotel, such as door handles or tables, are disinfected regularly and several times a day. Special attention is paid to the disinfection of catering areas. Disinfectants are also provided for participants at numerous stations.

FACE MASK PROTECTION

A face mask that covers your mouth and nose must be worn on the way into the event rooms, in all public areas outside the event rooms, in the sanitary facilities and where food is being given out. If you have forgotten your own face mask, a replacement will be waiting for you at the check-in. The staff at the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre, are also instructed to wear face masks.

Distancing

In the session, workshop, and keynote rooms there is a guaranteed distance of at least 1.5m between the seats. This is achieved by using additional space at the venue, by allowing virtual attendance, and by actively limiting the number of attendees. Additionally, the exhibition area and the general traffic areas will be laid out in such a way that social distancing rules can be upheld without any problems.

Guide to the exhibition

The routing in the event hotel will be designed in such a way that participants encounter each other as little as possible when entering and leaving the event location (separate entrances and exits).

Food and drink

In cooperation with the Holiday Inn Munich City Centre, culinary creations are served individually in the usual exceptional quality. Great importance is attached to the current hygiene regulations in gastronomy.

Nach einer langen Phase des „Social Distancing”, bedingt durch die Corona-Pandemie, wollen wir dann wieder mit Ihnen über aktuelle Technologien reden, uns treffen, austauschen und gegenseitig inspirieren!

Die Zeichen stehen gut, dass im November wieder Fachkonferenzen stattfinden werden. Falls notwendig, werden natürlich alle erforderlichen Hygiene- und Abstandsmaßnahmen getroffen, um die Konferenz zu einem sicheren und angenehmen Ort zu machen. Ganz so, wie Sie es von der W-JAX seit jeher kennen!

Als zusätzliche Möglichkeit bieten wir übrigens an, die Konferenz remote zu „besuchen”: per professioneller Videotechnik können Sie allen Vorträgen der Konferenz von zuhause oder vom Büro aus folgen. Weitere Informationen dazu folgen in nächster Zeit.

Und natürlich hält die W-JAX auch in diesem Jahr wieder eine Fülle aktueller Inhalte für Sie bereit — mehr als 130 renommierte Speaker werden in Sessions, Workshops und Keynotes ihr Wissen an Sie weiter geben.
