FIG Working Week 2020 +1

April 2020

FIG Working Week 2020 in the Netherlands will be moved to 2021

On 25 March, with heavy hearts, we had to cancel FIG Working Week 202 that should have taken place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, due to the COVID-19 situation.

After it was clear to us that we had to cancel FIG Working Week 2020 we have worked intensely on finding a solution that would be the best for all who had registered, for sponsors and for exhibitors.

It has turned out that, very generously, the local organisers for the Working Week 2021 from Ghana have offered that the FIG Working Week that should have taken place in the Netherlands in 2020, can be held in the Netherlands in 2021 (instead of Ghana).

It is a very special and generous offer from the Ghanaian Local Organising Committee for which both FIG Council and the Dutch Local Organisers are very grateful. This is showing real FIG spirit to come up with such an offer!

FIG Council has therefore made the following decisions:

These decisions will mean that the expenditures that have been held for these preparations can be moved to 202 and that we will also be able to transfer in full registration fees, sponsorship packages and exhibition stands to 2021. This minimizes the loss for both the local organizing committee and FIG.

An email will be sent directly to participants, sponsors and exhibitors.

We are very happy that we can come up with this solution, and grateful to the Ghanaian Local Organising Committee for making this option possible.

It is with pleasure that we can therefore invite to you FIG Working Week 2021 (...or 2020 +1) in the Netherlands.

FIG and the Dutch Local Organising Committee are now looking forward to working on the details of the preparations for the Working Week 2021 and we will get back with more information as soon as it is possible.
