Regarding LocWorld42 in Berlin, we are in negotiations with our conference venue, the InterContinental Berlin, and are forced to wait for further developments in Germany before we can make a definitive announcement. Meanwhile, we are investigating opportunities for a virtual and safely-distant way to get together, network and learn. We promise to let you know more as soon as we can. We ask for your patience and understanding.
