EuroEcho 2021 FAQ

9 - 11 December 2021 Online – around the world!

Important update if you registered for onsite congress in Berlin

Given the increasingly challenging COVID-19 situation across Europe, we have taken the very difficult decision to make EuroEcho 2021 online only. The onsite event, scheduled to take place in Berlin, will not go ahead as planned.

Your onsite registration will be automatically transferred to the online congress and you will be reimbursed the difference in the registration fee. No action is required on your part, but should you have any queries, please contact us at We realise that this is frustrating and disappointing for everyone, but your safety and that of our faculty, presenters must come first.

Important update on the hotels booked through our webpage

If you have booked a hotel room in Berlin through one of our partner hotels via our webpage please note that the special conditions allow you to cancel your reservation until 7 days before the arrival date. 

The rooms will not be cancelled automatically, so please contact the hotel directly if you booked in one of the hotels below:

  • Mondial Hotel
  • Hampton by Hilton City West
  • Hollywood Media Hotel 
  • Leonardo Hotel
  • Q! Hotel Berlin
  • Motel One Berlin Upper West



We recommend you register early to save money and benefit from the best fees.
