AMSTERDAM &NDASH; IBC, the world's most inspiring content and technology event, today confirmed that IBC2021 will take place on December 3-6 at The RAI in Amsterdam. The announcement follows a decision at yesterday's IBC Partnership Board meeting to continue with the planned event because it can be delivered safely and create the essential business momentum that the industry needs.
"As content and technology companies strive to recover from the awful impact of Covid-19, IBC 2021 will be the catalyst that brings the industry together again and enables us all to get back to doing business in person," said Michael Crimp, chief executive of IBC.
To access the show, visitors will be required to show their Covid status and answer health screening questions before picking up their badge or entering the show floor. Social distancing of 1.5 metres will be in place whilst queuing for the entry check. Once inside the "protected zone" attendees will be able to move around confidently, knowing they are in a safe place.
Travel to The Netherlands remains the same as before. IBC has published a safety and operational protocol update on its website here.
