Coronavirus Press-Release: FTSFEST20
A NOTE FROM OUR ITALIAN HQ
As a follow-up on concerns regarding the much-rumoured Coronavirus in Italy, we would like to proactively engage in letting you know how we see ourselves proceeding towards the (also very rumoured but much more interesting) upcoming FTS Festival.
In Milan, where the Festival will take place, the outbreak-related health security measures have been mostly lifted, while south-east Lombardia remains under strict public health control.
At the moment Milan is not an area at risk and we do not see reasons for concern for the event in the month of May.
We are therefore moving forward with Festival preparations while carefully following the WHO and Italian authorities’ recommendations.
Of course, having always in mind the safety of our speakers and attendees we plan to communicate any relevant updates as soon as they are available.
Full Coronavirus disclosure: our team in Milan is doing great! The office is open and smart working is in the FTS DNA anyway so no big deal. The city is a bit less bustling than normal (yeah, we know media outlets are depicting an apocalyptic scenario but according to the locals the city’s just normal – and easier to move around without tourists) but that’s pretty much it!
Please contact us with any further doubt we may help clarify.
