IMUNA 2020 is officially cancelled

The safety of you and our participants is our number one priority. Thereby we, unfortunately, have to inform you that the XXVII Edition of our annual event has been cancelled due to strict regulations, put in place by the Dutch Government, to prevent the further spread of COVID-19 (the Coronavirus). We will get in touch with everyone who has signed up for this year's event shortly. Furthermore, we would like to thank you for your interest in our conference and we would love to see each and every one of you healthy and safe at our conference next year.

We wish you all the best in these tough times and must you be left with any questions please don't hesitate to contact us at all.

The Executive Staff of IMUNA 2020

How COVID-19 affects the I.M.U.N.A. Foundation

The world currently has to deal with the negative effects of the coronavirus (COVID-19), for some of you, this raised questions regarding this year’s conference.

First of all, we would like to confirm that this year’s IMUNA will take place, as long as it is safe, and we have permission to do so. By all means, we keep an eye on the developments of the coronavirus in the Netherlands, and how it may affect our participants during the conference. However, above all, we have to adhere to government policies. The Dutch Government has proclaimed a lockdown, all schools are closed until the 6th of April, or until further notice. As the conference is only in June, there is currently no reason to cancel our XXVII Edition of IMUNA. We will keep you updated about any further proclamations done by our governments. 

Ensuring the safety of our participants during the conference is our number one priority. All measures concerning staying healthy, have been sharpened. Hygiene plans put together by experts will be followed thoroughly by the Executive Staff of IMUNA, and hopefully also by your students. Such plans include washing your hands frequently, we will make sure there are enough hand sanitizers during the conference, to stay at home or at your guest families when feeling sick or having a cold, not shaking hands or giving hugs, etc.. Together we can make sure no one will catch any viruses during your stay in Alkmaar.

Last, but not least, I would like to urge you to pay the invoices sent to you by our Financial Manager. The IMUNA Foundation is a small foundation, mostly funded by the contributions of these fees, and we would not be able to organize this conference without them. Thereby, the Cancellation Fee has been dropped to only 20%, because we understand there are some insecurities concerning the participation due to COVID-19, but nevertheless think we should all share the costs. In the case of the cancellation of the whole conference, all fees will be refunded

The Executive Staff hopes you stay healthy and to see you at our conference! Don't hesitate to contact us regarding any enquiry you might have.
