Important information regarding Vitalis

Regarding Vitalis scheduled for 5-7 May 2020, and the Swedish Government’s decision to prohibit public assemblies and public events.

Since March 12, 2020, public gatherings and public events with more than 500 participants must not be held in Sweden. On March 27, the Government, on the recommendation of the Public Health Authority, decided to further limit public gatherings and public events from Sunday, March 29. The decision, which is valid until further notice, means that the permitted limit for the number of participants is lowered from 500 to 50 people.

Although no end date has been set for the prohibition, the decision unfortunately will prevent Vitalis from taking place as planned on 5–7 May 2020.

Instead, we are pleased to announce that we have succeeded in securing a new date for Vitalis here at the Swedish Exhibition and Congress Centre – on 25-27 August 2020.

We are experiencing a complex situation involving many concerned parties, and are receiving a lot of questions regarding consequences and actions. We kindly ask you to read the information which is continuously updated on our website.

Thank you for your understanding.

"Based on the exceptional situation we are currently in, the fact that Vitalis currently are working on securing a new date is a very positive move. Vitalis is a unique arena for digitisation and an important opportunity for regions and counties, municipalities, private companies and the business sector to gain knowledge, share experiences and create new partnerships. I am also aware of the time and dedication that many people have put into creating this year’s conference program – in my opinion this makes it the most cutting edge knowledge event in Europe in the field of healthcare digitisation. It seems like a perfect wrap as a source of energy to draw from at the start of autumn."
Patrik Sundström, Programme Manager, the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKR)

”Our top priority is the health and security of our employeees and society. Based on the latest recommendation by the The Public Health Agency of Sweden and the fast moving development of the current situation, we fully support the decision made by Vitalis to secure a new date for the conference. Vitalis is an important arena for the development and and digitisation of society, and we look forward to gathering at Vitalis later this year to do that.”
Thomas Floberg, responsible for healthcare at Microsoft Sweden

”During the current circumstances, postponing Vitalis is the most responsible and constructive decision we can make. We are grateful for all the support we have had from our stakeholders in order to make this decision and we are working hard towards securing a date in June 2020.”
Maria Sterner, Business Manager, Vitalis
