  • Interpretation from English to International Sign (ISL) will be provided in all plenary sessions, keynotes, during the gala event and ULD / announced track.

For all other tracks, we booked a second team of ISL - interpreters to ensure the flexibility of our guests also outside ULD / an announced track.
