Newsletter Nr. 1 Interbourse 2021 Lech/Zuers, Austria
Posted on —
Dear Interbourse Fellows
The Covid-19 crisis has dominated our lives and as a result the headlines since the beginning of the year. There is no doubt that the pandemic and its effects are posing enormous challenges for the world. Nonetheless, we are confident that you are all coping well with the current difficult situation and are healthy.
Regrettably the planned Interbourse event in the Aosta valley had to be cancelled. The decision was certainly based on the fact that Italy has been hit extremely hard by the pandemic. At this point we would like to thank Team London for all their work and are looking forward to Interbourse 2022 in Courmayeur.
In mid-July the team captains were sent a letter, some of you may have seen it already. After we have received the comments of the captains and also appreciated their concerns, we would like to share our planning for the next year with you.
We clearly believe that Covid-19 will not simply disappear for a considerable period of time, however the world will continue to turn and we all have to deal with the new situation, society as a whole and everyone in her or his own way – and so does INTERBOURSE.
Therefore, and not least for reasons of continuity, we have decided to organise a “covid compliant edition” Interbourse 23–30 January 2021.
Of course, we hope that Covid-19 will soon be brought under control as effectively as possible. In the meantime, the protection concepts are being further refined to contain the spread of the virus. Countries such as Switzerland and Austria have managed and survived the situation well and are recording low numbers of new infections. Neither we as organizers nor the people responsible for the venue have any interest in giving the pandemic room to spread further. We are convinced that the protection concept of Lech Zuers meets all health requirements. Please find below their latest information on the COVID measures:
The measures will of course be permanently adapted to the current situation.
We have deliberately decided against a closed and limited event – of course, everyone is welcome to participate in the IB21 in January. With the highly attractive cancellation conditions and the COVID protection measures taken in Lech Zuers, the conditions for hosting IB 21 are fulfilled in the best possible way.
Despite all adversities, we have succeeded in negotiating attractive exit or cancellation conditions that are appropriate to the circumstances:
Until 31 days before arrival date no cancellation fees
30 days before arrival date 30 %
14 days before arrival date 90 %
For accommodation Lech Zuers Tourism will provide support:
