NamesCon Europe 2021 had been tentatively planned for the Summer, with the hope the conference could be held in Hungary if the trajectory of the Covid pandemic changed. While things seem to be improving in some places, it is still not safe enough to hold an in-person conference.
This morning, NamesCon organizers announced the Europe conference has been cancelled for 2021. Here’s the announcement I received a short while ago:
“Today’s a sad day—we have to cancel NamesCon Europe 2021!
Since Hungary still has a high rate of COVID infections and in-person gatherings are not allowed, we cannot produce NamesCon Europe in Budapest in July. Nobody can predict when things will improve and our recent NamesCon survey showed a high reluctance to travel, so planning this intimate in-person gathering didn’t make sense. Pandemics suck.
We’re not setting a new date for NamesCon Europe just yet, while we observe the situation from the safety of our home workspaces (just like you). Meanwhile, we’re planning our upcoming roster of events, both in-person and online—of course we will keep you updated each step of the way. We can’t wait to see you!
