Important Information: Cancellation

Dear colleagues and friends

We are very sad to inform you that the SwissRhythm 2020 annual meeting will not proceed as planned.

During the last weeks the organizing committee together with our partners put a lot of effort and time into the reorganization of the meeting and continuous adaptation of our protection concept to make a “hybrid” event with smaller on-site participation and live streaming possible. We have been looking forward to seeing our efforts put into SwissRhythm be rewarded by a lively and interactive meeting during these challenging times.

The decision of the Bundesrat from last Wednesday does not allow an on-site meeting, and several speakers and partners from the industry informed us already that they will not be able to attend in Luzern. The familiar atmosphere, interactive sessions and spontaneous personal discussions are at the heart of SwissRhythm. We do not feel that this could be achieved with a purely virtual meeting, and after very careful deliberation and consideration, we came to the conclusion that we currently do not have the resources for a virtual meeting in an appropriate quality. Therefore, the decision was made to cancel the 2020 SwissRhythm annual meeting.

We wish you all the best in these difficult times, good health for you and your families and look forward to seeing you at next year’s SwissRhythm in Luzern on November 17 – 19, 2021.

On behalf of the Board of the Working Group
