User Day in the anni­ver­s­a­ry year 2021

The die is cast: the next User Day, ori­gi­nal­ly sche­du­led for Sep­tem­ber of this year, will not take place until next year. 2021 is also a good date, becau­se then the 25th anni­ver­s­a­ry of Inno­soft is com­ing up, which we would like to cele­bra­te with you.

2020, on the other hand, is not under a very good star. For about a quar­ter of a year now, the Coro­na virus con­ti­nues to hold the world in sus­pen­se and mas­si­ve­ly restricts all our lives, both in the pri­va­te and pro­fes­sio­nal sec­tors. Back to nor­mal? If the past mon­ths have taught us one thing, it is that know­ledge, insights, pro­ba­bi­li­ties and pro­gno­ses are sub­ject to per­ma­nent chan­ge. What seems almost cer­tain today may be com­ple­te­ly impos­si­ble tomor­row, and vice versa.

And even though the­re are now, for­tu­n­a­te­ly, signs of a rela­xa­ti­on in many pla­ces and the ban on tra­de fairs and major events issued by the federal and sta­te aut­ho­ri­ties only app­lies until 31 August 2020, our popu­lar event could not have been held in the usu­al manner.

In addi­ti­on to the high qua­li­ty of the pre­sen­ta­ti­ons, the 13 User Days so far have always been cha­rac­te­ri­zed by the plea­s­ant­ly rela­xed, some­ti­mes almost fami­li­ar over­all atmo­s­phe­re, as par­ti­ci­pants often told us in their feed­back after the events. As a visi­tor, one could be very clo­se when Inno­soft pro­ject mana­gers demons­tra­ted indi­vi­du­al pro­gram sequen­ces and inno­va­tions live in smal­ler rounds, could make new con­ta­cts or deepen exis­ting rela­ti­ons­hips and exchan­ge expe­ri­en­ces in the nume­rous breaks in which par­ti­ci­pants stood or sat tog­e­ther casual­ly over snacks and drinks.

This time, howe­ver, the obli­ga­ti­on to wear a mask and the requi­re­ment for distance would make many things dif­fe­rent. Abo­ve all, a mas­si­ve limi­ta­ti­on of par­ti­ci­pants would have been necessa­ry in the boo­ked loca­ti­ons. Of the well over one hund­red visi­tors in the past years, we would have had to reject more than half of them with a hea­vy heart. This is some­thing we abso­lute­ly want to avoid. The­re­fo­re, we pre­fer to hope that time is on our side and that we can arran­ge the new plan­ning, taking the deve­lo­p­ment into account, in such a way that we can redu­ce the nega­ti­ve aspects to a mini­mum and that we can meet again next year as fami­li­ar and care­free as we remem­ber it so well from the past.

All the spea­kers sche­du­led for 2020 have reac­ted with gre­at under­stan­ding to the post­po­ne­ment and immedia­te­ly signal­led their wil­ling­ness to be part of the new date with updated pre­sen­ta­ti­ons. The Inno­soft User Day, at which we also cele­bra­te the 25th com­pa­ny anni­ver­s­a­ry, will now most likely take place in June 2021 (week 25) in Dort­mund. We will inform you as soon as we have any reli­able details.

Stay well!
