If you were waiting for a sign from the universe that CloudFest 2022 was really going to take place in person, well, this is it!
Over the last weeks we have been in extensive exchange with the venue Europa-Park, local authorities and the responsible federal state government of Baden Württemberg. We have now received final confirmation that CloudFest 2022 can take place as planned from March 22-24. The current expectation is that all trade shows will be allowed by the time CloudFest takes place as more and more restrictions continue to be lifted. Already today, in most parts of Germany trade shows are allowed and happening. If for any foreseeable reason the restrictions should not be lifted in general, we have received confirmation that CloudFest will be granted a special exemption permit and can take place as planned.
What sealed the deal was our comprehensive COVID safety plan, which is based on proof of full vaccination or recent recovery, to create a zone of safety and peace of mind for CloudFest attendees, partners, and staff. (This is called “2G” in Germany.) From the moment you arrive at your hotel until the moment you leave the festival with a fistful of new contacts and a slight hangover, we’re taking every measure to keep that pesky coronavirus out—it does NOT have a ticket!
That link will also show you how to determine German entry requirements based on where you’re starting your journey, as well as where to get tested once you get to Rust. (Note that entry to Germany requires proof of full vaccination anyway if you want to avoid quarantine upon landing, so you’ll want to get that second jab 14 days before you arrive, if you haven’t gotten it already.)
GETTING THE FAMILY BACK TOGETHER
It will have been three long years since we last gathered face-to-face at Europa-Park! There’s just no substitute to meeting up in person, and we’ve all been feeling the gravitational pull towards the rest of the awesome CloudFest community. Everyone has made the most of virtual get-togethers, but something magical happens when we can connect face to face. (Even if sometimes we’ll be wearing masks!)
CloudFest is now in the final stages of preparation, lining up a roster of mind-blowing speakers and panels as well as a packed social schedule of concerts and parties—all with the goal of helping you reach your business goals in the internet infrastructure industry and have a great (and safe) time doing it!
You’re ready for this—go ahead and grab yourself a free ticket to join us March 22-24 as we take over Europa-Park once again!
