More than anything else, we care about the safety and health of our participants, guests and partners. For this reason, we have decided to postpone our anniversary congress 2020 "100 Years of VGB" (planned for the 9th and 10th September 2020) to the 22nd and 23rd September 2021.

With the postponement of the congress, the awarding of the Quality Award will also be postponed. We take this opportunity and extend the deadline for submitting proposals to the 2nd June 2021.
