Hi everyone, You probably already
know what’s coming. And unfortunately it’s the case. I would like to briefly explain why,
we cannot put on the OMR Festival this year. The situation in Germany, Europe and the world
has rapidly worsened. So much so that we are unable
to responsibly hold the event given the health and safety risks
an event of such scale poses to our guests, to our partners
and to those all of those who come into contact with our guests. We just can’t do it, it’s not responsible and for the cancellation,
I would like to say sorry. It was an incredibly difficult decision for me and for the entire team. We have spent a lot of time and energy on planning It’s was a very, very tough decision. And we are aware that we are not
the only ones facing such a situation at the moment. Many of our partners in the event industry colleagues from the media and marketing industries are also facing a very difficult time. Our mindset and approach will be to make the absolute best
out of the situation, to present new ideas, to come up with new solutions
that were previously not on the table— All keeping with the spirit of OMR. We’ll be working hard on these measures
and you’ll be seeing those from us very soon. What else I can say right now is that you will be hearing from us
in the next few hours individually. Ticket holders, partners, interested parties,
we’ll be exploring individual ways of dealing with the situation in the fair and favorable manner that you have come to expect from us. I know that it is not an easy situation that some of you will be incredibly dissappointed.
I would still like to thank you for your interest in the Festival,
for the fact that you wanted to come, for being a part of us all year long. and I hope we’ll see each other soon. At the very latest on May 4 & 5, 2021 at OMR21, where we’ll do our best
to make it up to you. Thanks for listening.
All the best from Hamburg, Philipp.
