General Information

Booklet General Information

We have compiled a lot of relevant (good-to-know) information about the Congress, about the City of Hannover and places nearby (Day-trips) in a little Booklet.

You will find a PRINTED version of this Booklet in your Congress Bag, which you will get at the Registration Desk.

However, we believe that you will be happy to have it earlier at your disposal in order to make plans while still at home.

Please find the PDF of the Booklet, open it, read it and - hopefully - enjoy it ! :-)
