The 2G sanitary plan submitted to the Hamburg authorities by ERTICO – ITS Europe and ITS Hamburg 2021 GmbH has been pre-approved, with the last details being finalised.
‘Thanks to this format, visitors to the Congress can interact more freely in a safe and secure environment, enabling the networking that we have missed for so long. Everyone can enjoy the full Congress experience including the high-level programme, technical sessions, exhibition, demonstrations, technical visits, to name but a few of the highlights.’ says Jacob Bangsgaard, ERTICO CEO.
Under the 2G format, all attendees will need either to be fully vaccinated with one of the 4 EU recognised vaccinations (Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, Janssen/Johnson&Johnson and Oxford/AstraZeneca) or have proof of full recovery from COVID-19 (presentation of a valid vaccination certificate and/or proof of COVID-19 recovery). According to Harry Evers, Managing Director, ITS Hamburg 2021 GmbH, ‘With these 2G rules, participants can exchange ideas and network more freely, which creates a real ITS World Congress atmosphere.’
The current health and hygiene plan is being adjusted to meet the strict requirements of the 2G format. All participants will only gain their entry pass after meeting the necessary COVID-related requirements.
