M01N Startup Camp (Bremen, Germany) shifted to October due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). But also SPOT Festival in Aarhus (Denmark) canceled due to the Coronavirus. In Aarhus, too, certain festival activities will be postponed to another date. It is not yet certain whether the Inno-Quarter ativitites are included. Startups that have registered for this festival will be kept informed by their Innovation Broker.
Below the explanation of the festivals about the reasons and the new dates.
M01N Startup Camp
We worked highly motivated until the end of the M01N camp in March and always believed in making this possible for all of us. It is all the more disappointing in our entire team that a shift is now inevitable.
The Bremen Senate has banned events with more than 1,000 participants. For this reason, we are moving the M01N Camp 2020 to the 22nd-23rd of October 2020. This decision affects us humanly and economically, but the health of everyone involved is our top priority.
True to our START FAIL SUCCEED guideline, we still look positively into the future and are really looking forward to organizing the most emotional startup event in the north with you in October.
The ongoing Corona crisis has dramatically affected the Danish event business. SPOT’s board of directors and leaders have therefore come to the conclusion that it is unrealistic to complete this year’s ambitious festival.
Being the oldest and biggest showcase festival for upcoming Danish and Nordic music, SPOT is an important meeting place where international business and media contacts can experience the music and meet each other.
The uncertainty is also huge internationally speaking. We have already received cancellations from international agents, members of the press, journalists, publishers and festival organizers.
Our newly formed plan is to organize a bunch of concerts and business-related activities during summer and autumn to put a spotlight on new Danish music productions.
SPOT is already in contact with several partners and suppliers, and we will continue to plan these events over the next days and weeks.
SPOT will refund all bought festival tickets and delegate tickets (full refund except for payment card fees). For further info regarding refunds please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
