Guitar Summit 2021 – Registration open now!

After a turbulent last year, Guitar Summit is back with a live event in Mannheim’s Rosengarten on September 17th-19th, 2021!

With safety being our top priority, we are going to host the event with comprehensive hygiene and security measures. These measures include modern guidance systems, larger areas, an adapted number of visitors and seamless contact tracking. All measures can be flexibly adapted to current requirements and thus they enable a Guitar Summit in the usual familiar and relaxed atmosphere. More information about the hygiene concept can be found below.
