What is going to be different in 2019

Taking bags into theTempodrom

Please note that due to increased security regulations for all public events (like us) it is not allowed any more to take bags bigger then an A4 page into the Tempodrom. Please come with bags as small as possible and take only the absolutely nessesary with you. We apologize for the inconvenince but those are security regulations we need to follow.

Taking coats & bags into the Big Arena

Please note also that for the same security regulations it is not possible any more to take big bags and hand bags (everything bigger than a shoe bag) into the Big Arena at night. Also all coats and jackets have to be left at the coat check and can NOT be taken into the Big Arena. The Tempodrom will double the number of people working at the coat checks and open a second coat check in order to avoid cues.

Taking drinks into the Academies

Note that it is not allowed to take your own drinks into the Tempodrom nor into the Academy rooms at the hotels. That will be checked at the entrance. Please make sure the security check is as fast as possible by not trying to bring drinks into the Academies.

At the Tempodrom they will sell the water in day time for a very reduced price.

At the Crowne Plaza they will open a Bar just for you where they sell water & soft drinks for reasonable prices.

Make it easy for you. And for us. Do not bring your own drinks.

Those are regulations set by the venues. We need to follow them. Berlin Salsacongress does NOT run the bars nor do we get any share off the bars.

Video taping

Please note that it is strictly forbidden to tape the shows. Main shows, Stargate Shows, Sensual Shows. Please do not try. 

The Academies can be taped after instructors gave permission. Respect your instructors and do not tape during the Academies.

In the Masterclasses it is NOT allowed to tape at any time, also not at the end. there will be NO demo at the end. We will produce a professional tape for each Masterclass which we will share with the attendees of each individual Masterclass.
