Covid-19

In light of the Covid-19 pandemic, the health, safety and well-being of the public and visitors is our highest priority.  We continuously monitor the global health situation, and are taking health precautions in the preparation of the ILGA World conference.

Throughout the process, we will follow all relevant institutional and governmental rules, regulations, and restrictions for the containment of the pandemic.

We have the following contingency plans in place should travel remain unsafe or impossible, which include possibly postponing or downsizing the conference. 

October 2021: A decision will be made whether the ILGA World Conference needs to be postponed to the fourth quarter of 2022
December 2021:  If the conference will continue in May 2022 as planned, a decision will be made whether the conference needs to be downsized
February 2022: If the conference will be postponed to the fourth quarter of 2022, we will announce the new conference dates by this time.
April 2022: If the conference will be postponed to the fourth quarter of 2022, a decision will be made whether the conference needs to be downsized

Any decision will be based on considerations about

  • the health and safety of participants
  • the logistical feasibility of delivering the conference.
  • the ability for the conference to have diverse participation from all regions
  • the need to allow the membership to meet to conduct its governance processes.

Important:

  • Please note that the conference might be postponed to a later date (end of 2022) due to the situation of the global Covid-19 pandemic. Such a decision will be confirmed no later than October 2021.
  • In the event that the conference is postponed or downsized, your conference fee will be fully-refundable if you cannot make the new dates.
  • In making travel and accommodation arrangements, we strongly advise you to make cancellable bookings.
