INTERTRAFFIC & COVID-19

Important update - 15 January 2022:

The central government in the Netherlands has eased restrictions. The announced relaxations apply to amongst others shops, education and sports. Further relaxations are expected on the 25th of January 2022.

It’s time to get together again!

End of March RAI Amsterdam will be the proud host for the global mobility ecosystem and we can’t wait to welcome everyone. Intertraffic Amsterdam is all set to put the spotlights on the latest developments in the world of mobility and traffic technology. We look forward to finally reunite the Intertraffic community from 29 March to 1 April 2022.

Global circumstances continue to evolve and with the realisation that Covid-19 is not going to go away governments are charging ahead in finding the right balance between cautiousness, safety and a liveable and economically flourishing society. With the early proactive action of the Dutch government, successful vaccination campaigns and health expert views we have every confidence we can run a successful in-person event early Spring.

The continuous commitment of long time exhibitors and surge in demand for stand space amongst newcomers demonstrate the eagerness to meet in an in-person setting is omnipresent. The 2022 edition will feature well over 800 exhibitors spread over 13 exhibit halls, combined with a free to attend 120 session strong educational component, the Intertraffic Summit & Demonstration Programme. Renowned companies, cities and stakeholder organizations such as Swarco, 3M, Yunex Traffic, EasyPark, International Road Federation, Polis, City of Amsterdam, TomTom, Visa, Mobileye, Teledyne FLIR, Redflex Traffic Systems, Flowbird, WPS Traffic Systems and many others will be part of the programme.

Our Intertraffic campaign confirms the positive outlook from visitors for our Spring event. Visitors from over 120 countries have already registered their attendance. Read more >

Intertraffic Q&A - EXTRA

Q: Will the Dutch government restrictions and current ban on events impact Intertraffic?

Intertraffic will be staged as planned. With the early proactive action of the Dutch government and successful current (booster) vaccination campaigns we have every confidence the Netherlands will be open for business well before the end of March so we can run a successful in-person event early Spring (29 March – 1 April).

Q: Will Intertraffic take place at the original dates?

Intertraffic Amsterdam will be staged as planned from the 29th of March through 1st of April 2022. With the continuous commitment of exhibitors and visitor registration on track it is clear that everyone is looking forward to get together again. We will comply with the then prevailing government guidelines.

Q: Can RAI safely stage an event?

RAI puts safety first, for exhibitors, visitors and employees alike. We have successfully staged a number of large scale international events in Q4 2021 with strict protocols in place in line with government guidelines. The hall lay-out of Intertraffic accommodates wider aisles and additional large network areas to further facilitate social distancing.

Q: Are the usual exhibitors present?

The vast majority of the usual Intertraffic exhibitors are there and we are welcoming many new and first time exhibitors as well. Some exhibitors will follow their internal company policy and will not be present. For those not voluntarily absent (due to travel bans imposed by their national government) we are looking at alternative ways to present themselves to the Intertraffic community and benefit from business opportunities.

Q: What are the expectations on visitor volume?

Currently international business travel is possible throughout Europe and beyond. Individual country travel restrictions may still have some impact. Our Intertraffic campaign so far confirms the positive outlook from visitors for our Spring event. The pace of registration is on track and we already have registrations from more than 100 countries. In recent (Q3/Q4 2021) RAI events the number of representatives per company showed a slight cut from previous years. Whereas this affected quantity, the exhibitor feedback from said events indicates that actual visitor quality and decision making level is second to none, providing a very dedicated and motivated audience with clear objectives.

Q: What is your Covid entrance policy?

Visitors to Intertraffic must show proof of a complete course of vaccinations with matching ID, a valid certificate of recovery from Covid or a negative Covid test certificate (valid for a maximum of 24 hours) and answer health screening questions. The use of face masks is recommended and audience density is monitored to allow for social distancing. Once inside, attendees will be able to move around confidently, knowing they are in a controlled environment. In the run up to the show, we will closely follow the developments and adhere to any modifications in government guidelines.

Q: I am still uncertain, what can I do?

We recognize that attending a live event may not be for everyone at this time, and we fully respect individual decisions. We, however, are confident we can deliver our in-person event safely and create the essential momentum the industry needs. The broad offering of solutions on display combined with our extensive summit & demonstration programme will make attending Intertraffic a valuable and rewarding experience for dedicated professionals. Those that are not in a position to attend in-person can make full use of our online matchmaking platform Intertraffic Connect to network and engage with exhibitors and visitors alike. Visitors can register at any time via our website.

Q: I have a question different from the above, who can I contact?
