Announcement by the FIDI President: let's meet in Cannes in 2022

Plans for 2021 FIDI Conference in Vienna suspended; focus shifts to Cannes in 2022

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to create havoc across the world, the FIDI Board and office have been monitoring the developments very closely on a regular basis.

In light of the latest available information, the FIDI Board has taken the difficult decision to suspend the preparations for the 2021 FIDI Conference, scheduled to take place in Vienna at the end of August.

This decision was taken after long deliberation and with a heavy heart. After more than a year of remote working, we are all craving to travel and meet friends and colleagues again. However, due to the uncertain developments of the worldwide pandemic, the FIDI Board feels that it is impossible to guarantee the health and safety of all attendees and to allow everybody an equal opportunity to attend the FIDI Conference.

The annual conference is our community’s main occasion for joyful celebration and meaningful connections. In the current context of global uncertainty, the Board feels that it would be impossible to offer a great experience, worthy of a true FIDI Conference. The FIDI team is now putting all its energy and efforts into making next year’s conference in Cannes unforgettable, and in creating online opportunities to keep in touch until then.
