Dear delegates and guests of the Congress!
On September 4, the main venue of the Congress – the Kosmos concert hall (Yekaterinburg) – caught fire. Therefore, the organizers have made a decision to move a part of the events to the Palace of Sports (Olympic quay, 3).
No event scheduled in the program will be canceled. Tomorrow you will see an updated map of venues. Workshops and sightseeing tours remain as previously announced.
We will make sure that all participants feel comfortable in Yekaterinburg and bring back to their home countries warm and nice memories about our event. Because we are convinced that the Congress is not made of venues, it is made of people that take part in it.
Yours sincerely, the office of the First World Congress for persons with disabilities.
