ERTICO issues Lisbon Coronavirus statement

March 11 2020

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 organisations, we are carefully monitoring the global Coronavirus – COVID-19 situation.

As of today, no international events have been cancelled at the CCL and there are no recommendations from the Local authorities to do so, therefore we foresee that the event will be held as planned.

All preventive measures suggested by the Portuguese authorities and international health organisations have already been implemented on site. These include disinfection kits and information boards throughout the venue, a medical room with a permanent doctor and nurse, a containment medical room and specific evacuation routes.

The measures will be updated according to the recommendations of the Portuguese authorities and international health organisations, on a daily basis.

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.
