[UPDATE] The ESA AGM is postponed to 25th – 27th October 2021 due to the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic. The venue stays the same. No action is required other than to reserve a room for the new dates.
Following the difficulties of arranging the AGM in 2020, we are pleased to confirm that the 2021 Annual General Meeting of the European Sealing Association will be held in Vienna on the 5th, 6th and 7th May 2021 (Weds/Thus/Fri).
The hotel for the conference and museum for the dinner have been very supportive when cancelling the 2020 AGM and we would like to return their generosity by utilising the two venues.
Previously with the assistance of the Klinger Group and Lenzing Plastics, both long standing members of the ESA, we were able to locate a suitable hotel close to the centre of Vienna. The Hotel Savoyen will host the 3-day event and can now accept reservations for these dates (details below).
The format will be very similar to previous years with divisional meetings held on Wednesday and Friday and the General Meeting and workshops held on Thursday. We will also host a dinner for members and their partners on Thursday 6th in the evening at the spectacular Kunsthistorisches Museum.
The provisional schedule for AGM 2021 can be found in the Members area of the ESA website. (If you require the password, please contact us by writing to Mark Neal.) The meetings are for ESA Members and invited guests only.
The room rate is €180 per night for a double and €160 single and can be cancelled up to 14 days before at no cost. If there is a cancellation within 14 days of the conference, 100% of the room rate is payable by you.

We kindly ask you to also notify the ESA of your intention to attend the AGM by writing to Mark Neal.
