eco congress 2021 9
eco://kongress & eco://award

Cloud Expo Europe, which was planned for December 8/9, 2021 in Frankfurt am Main, Germany, and which also included this year's eco Congress and the eco Award ceremony, will be postponed until May 2022 due to the current pandemic.

It is therefore with regret that we have decided to cancel the eco Congress and postpone the eco Award to next year, as both events would suffer considerably if they were held virtually.

We ask for your patience in announcing an alternative date for the eco Award, which we would like to set for next year after careful consideration of the pandemic.

We will keep you informed and are available at any time to answer any questions you may have.
