World Tunnel Congress in Copenhagen Postponed to September 2022

On January 27, the WTC 2022 Organizing Committee and the ITA have announced that the World Tunnel Congress 2022 in Copenhagen will take place at Bella Center from Friday September 2 to Thursday September 8, 2022, instead of April 22 to 28.

New Date: September 2–8, 2022

In a context of a global health crisis and awareness of the difficulty for many industry professionals at this time to commit to participate in the WTC 2022 in April, the WTC2022 Organizing Committee in agreement with the ITA Executive Council has decided to once again postpone the WTC 2022 in Copenhagen.

The expectation is, as it was also the case in 2021, that by September the COVID-19 virus will be less virulent and therefore will allow the entire tunnel and underground profession to finally meet and see each other again in good conditions.

The Organizing Committee is backed by the 150 exhibitors in the decision to postpone again and has assured that the conference will follow any health regulations that may be in force by next September in Denmark, if any. All ITA activities will also take place between September 2 and 8 such as the General Assembly and meetings of the Working Groups and Committees etc.

Hybrid Congress

As recently announced, and also will be the case for all future WTCs, the World Tunnel Congress 2022 will take place in a hybrid mode (physical and digital), allowing those for whom travel may still be difficult or for other reasons cannot attend the physical conference, to take advantage of all the content presented at the congress.
