  1. It would be very good if The Drinks Business could give some news about the options for those who had planned to go and now have non-refundable reservations. Since the German Government recommended that the show be cancelled, will that make a difference? Have your readers had any experiences to share on how and if they’ve managed to convince hotels and airlines to refund, credit or change the dates of the reservations? What about credit card insurance? I’m going to start looking into it but would be interested to read other comments.
