This year we have tried to prepare for the highest quality of knowledge transfer in order to celebrate the 10th anniversary TVRS.
In light of the growing concerns around COVID-19 and travel restrictions, we have decided that the safety and health of all our participants, speakers and visitors has the utmost priority for us.
We regret to inform you that we’ve made the difficult decision to postpone the 10th TVRS from June 1 – June 5, 2020 to October 26 – October 30, 2020.
We would like to thank all of you for your understanding and apologize for any inconvenience caused.
During these challenging times we urge all of you to take all the precautionary measures to stay healthy.
