German term or phrase: Konzeptfreeze
In diesem sollten die wesentlichen Meilensteine, wie z.B. die Festlegung des Veranstaltungsortes und der Konzeptfreeze, für die Projektverantwortlichen festgeschrieben werden.

"in diesem" refers to a Sollterminplan ("debit schedule"?) in the previous paragraph:

"Um Kostenerhoeherungen durch kurzfristige Konzeptaenderungen vorzubeugen, sollte ein Sollterminplan verabschiedet werden."

agree  Ruth Wiedekind: I know "design freeze", so why shouldn't there be a "concept freeze", if needed.

  -> Thanks, Ruth. It seems that the phrase was 'coined' in English and 'loaned' to German.
