It has been discussed the issue on whether to have a face-to-face meeting for the “Presidents’ Conference” in 2021. As a primary condition it has been considered that at least 80% of the National Federations have to be able to attend. On the contrary, a virtual conference will be organised. Anyhow, a final decision is to be expected at a later stage as soon as we have more clarity on National Covid restrictions.
