ESA Summer ticket sales are postponed due to the coronavirus

ESA is closely monitoring the situation with ESA Summer. The working assumption is, as of today, that ESA Summer shall go ahead as planned. However, the situation regarding national and local quarantine can develop rapidly. As a result we are postponing ticket sales until the beginning of May at the earliest. ESA suggests that you do not book travel until tickets are on sale. This time period will allow us to continue to assess the situation and to put in place a “Plan B” should we have to postpone ESA Summer until later in the year.

It is hoped ESA submissions shall begin following the conclusion of ESA Together.
