ERTICO – ITS Europe, ITS Portugal, the City of Lisbon and CCL (Lisbon Congress Centre) would like to reassure all participants and stakeholders of the 2020 ITS European Congress that, along with the Portuguese authorities and international health organizations, we are carefully monitoring the global Coronavirus – COVID-19 situation.
As of today, there are no recommendations from the Local authorities not to hold international events in May in Lisbon. Nevertheless we are looking at all potential alternatives in view that the event will happen in a safe and healthy environment.
As with other large-scale events around Europe, we must be prudent and realistic in our planning. We are working closely with our partners, the authorities, Lisbon Congress Centre and with health care professionals to establish alternative plans including postponement of the ITS European Congress.
Our main concern remains the health and safety of our staff, exhibitors, visitors and partners and therefore we will continue keeping a close eye on further developments and referring to the guidelines and recommendations provided by local and national health and professional authorities.
All relevant decisions and communication regarding the ITS European Congress logistics and organisation will be shared on this website.
Thank you for your trust and we do hope for your understanding in these uncertain times.
We will come back to you shortly.
