EENA2021 moves from spring to autumn!
Dear EENA community,
Here comes November and the time when we can enjoy autumn landscapes with shimmering colours and golden sun rays. At EENA, usually this period of the year also marks the start of exciting preparations for the upcoming annual conference. However, most of the world keeps struggling with the spread of COVID-19 and many countries are being hit by a second wave of coronavirus.
In this unsteady climate, last month we decided to launch a survey within our community. The feedback is unequivocal: 85% of the respondents recommended postponing EENA2021 to the second half of the year. Also, since 92% stated that they miss in-person events, we are reassured in our conviction that our annual conference should be kept as a physical event. We believe that this is key to enabling meaningful exchanges between colleagues and friends from all over the world.
For these reasons, we have decided to postpone the EENA Conference & Exhibition until Autumn 2021.
Save the new dates for the next EENA Conference
Wednesday 6 – Friday 8 October 2021, in Riga
The venue will remain the Radisson Blu Latvija Conference & Spa Hotel in Riga, Latvia. We will be contacting speakers, exhibitors and sponsors in the next weeks to rearrange the plans.

EENA has then decided to go virtual in the first semester of 2021 and is pleased to announce an event dedicated to Next Generation 112 (NG112) that will be held over a week in April 2021 (exact dates to be announced soon).
Also, on top of the regular EENA webinars, a series of webinars will focus on emergency communications reforms in European countries. Once a month, from January to June, emergency services will share their experience and plans with the EENA community.
More information will come soon on the EENA website and in the next EENA newsletters. Stay tuned! Until then, please stay safe and know that we always support you during this challenging time.
Sending you our best,
The EENA Team
