THE API CONFERENCE TEAM IS LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING YOU!
Every year, API Conference The Hague is the meeting point for API and software architecture enthusiasts! This year, too, we look forward to meeting you again!
This year API Conference will take place under very special conditions. Even though API Conference is by no means a small conference, it is not what politicians call a “big event”. So things are looking good.
Together with the Hague Marriott Hotel, we will of course observe the necessary hygiene and distancing measures. That is also why we are taking particular care to limit the number of attendees.
Therefore as an additional option we have created a hybrid concept: you can “attend” the conference on site or remotely from your home or office. All lectures and workshops will be streamed live using professional video technology.
As you can see – thanks to the innovative program and the numerous networking opportunities, this year’s API Conference will once again provide the ideal setting for your continued development, whether you’re on site in The Hague or attending digitally – the choice is yours!
On behalf of the entire API Conference team: Sebastian Meyen (Conference Chair API Conference, S&S Media Group)

API CONFERENCE IN TIMES OF CORONA: HOW CAN THIS WORK?
First of all: It does work! Together with hygiene experts and in cooperation with The Hague Marriott Hotel, a detailed concept has been developed for API Conference to make your conference participation as safe and enjoyable as possible.
The Hague Marriott Hotel supports this process with special expertise it possesses as a member of the internationally connected premium hotel family Marriott International.
The following measures apply to API Conference 2020 and will, if necessary, adjusted in accordance with official requirements:
All contact surfaces of the conference hotel, such as door handles or tables, are disinfected regularly and several times a day. Special attention is paid to the disinfection of catering areas. Disinfectants are also provided for participants at numerous stations.
FACE MASK PROTECTION
A face mask that covers your mouth and nose must be worn on the way into the event rooms, in all public areas outside the event rooms, in the sanitary facilities and where food is being given out. If you have forgotten your own face mask, a replacement will be waiting for you at the check-in. The staff at the The Hague Marriott Hotel are also instructed to wear face masks.
In the session, workshop, and keynote rooms there is a guaranteed distance of at least 1.5m between the seats. This is achieved by using additional space at the venue, by allowing virtual attendance, and by actively limiting the number of attendees. Additionally, the exhibition area and the general traffic areas will be laid out in such a way that social distancing rules can be upheld without any problems.
GUIDE TO THE EXHIBITION
The routing in the event hotel will be designed in such a way that participants encounter each other as little as possible when entering and leaving the event location (separate entrances and exits).
FOOD AND DRINK
In cooperation with the The Hague Marriott Hotel, culinary creations are served individually in the usual exceptional quality. Great importance is attached to the current hygiene regulations in gastronomy.
