  • Visits to galvanizing plants are at your own risk. It is essential to follow precisely all instructions given by personnel at the plants. By registering for plant visits, delegates accept that visits are at their own risk. Admittance to a galvanizing plant may be restricted, due to operational or other reasons, that are beyond the control of the organisers of Intergalva 2018. While EGGA and the owners of the plants visited have taken reasonable precautions to ensure the safety of visits, neither EGGA nor the owners accept liability for loss or injury howsoever caused.
  • Participants in Group 2 (Cologne area) or Group 3 (Munich) may decide to depart from Germany without returning to Berlin on 22 June. If you plan this approach – please contact us for itinerary details before booking for event travel.
