Also on Thursday, 5 March, the Association of Event Organisers (VDVO) is inviting the meeting and event industry to the International Club Berlin. Instead of the originally scheduled ITB MICE Night, the VDVO is hosting a dialogue format on the current situation and the challenges facing the industry due to the coronavirus.
