Even though we are positive that the conference will take place in October, there is still a possibility that it might have to be postponed in case of a second wave of COVID-19, or if borders happen to be closed again, or should public gatherings be forbidden at the time, or in case of any such circumstances that could render holding the conference unfeasible or difficult to proceed with. Also, in case that by the time of the conference travel restrictions shall exist (e.g. mandatory COVID-19 testing or a quarantine as a prerequisite for entering any of the involved countries), the Model WTO Belgrade reserves the right to postpone the conference. Please keep that in mind when making any travel plans.

If you have any questions regarding this, please come back directly to the Organizing team. We will do our best to comply to the preventive measures imposed and/or recommended by the relevant authorities at the time of the conference. However, we shall not be held liable for any potential health issues and/or the health of the participants in general.
