Dear TRA2020 stakeholders,

TRA2020 organisers currently receive many enquiries concerning the cancellation of TRA2020 conference in April 2020. The cancellation of TRA2020 conference was announced on 13 March 2020. Full statement can be found below.

We kindly ask you to note, that the organisers are currently focusing on immediate actions required due to cancellation of the event, together with considerations on how the objectives of the conference could otherwise be realised.

The organisers will be in contact with all participants in the near future.

We ask you to kindly ensure that you cancel your travel arrangements and hotel reservations for the conference in April 2020.

Meanwhile, we thank you for your patience and regret the disadvantage that this may cause to participants, speakers and exhibitors.

TRA2020 Transport Research Arena was meant to take place in the Helsinki Expo and Convention Centre Messukeskus between 27 and 30 April 2020. The TRA conference is the foremost biennial transport and communications event in Europe. The conference has in earlier years gathered around 2,500 transport and communications experts from Europe and beyond.

Arvoisat TRA2020-sidosryhmät,

TRA2020-järjestäjät vastaanottavat tällä hetkellä paljon kyselyitä liittyen TRA2020-konferenssin peruuntumiseen huhtikuussa 2020. Konferenssin peruuntumisesta tiedotettiin 13.3.2020. Koko tiedote on luettavissa alla.

Pyydämme ystävällisesti osallistujia huomioimaan, että järjestäjät keskittyvät tällä hetkellä huhtikuun konferenssin perumistoimiin ja mahdollisiin toimenpiteisiin, miten konferenssin tavoitteita voitaisiin muuten edistää.

Järjestäjät ovat yhteydessä osallistujiin lähiaikoina.

Pyydämme ystävällisesti osallistujia huolehtimaan omien matkajärjestelyidensä ja hotellivaraustensa perumisesta huhtikuun TRA2020-konferenssiin liittyen.

Kiitämme kärsivällisyydestänne ja pahoittelemme suuresti osallistujille, puhujille ja näytteilleasettajille aiheutuvaa haittaa.

TRA2020 eli Transport Research Arena oli tarkoitus järjestää Messukeskuksessa Helsingissä 27.–30.4.2020. TRA-konferenssi on tärkein eurooppalainen liikenteen ja viestinnän joka toinen vuosi järjestettävä tapahtuma. Tilaisuus on aiempina vuosina koonnut yhteen noin 2500 liikenteen ja viestinnän asiantuntijaa Euroopasta ja muualta maailmasta.

TRA2020 conference in April 2020 has been cancelled

Finnish Government has on 12 March issued a policy statement, that all larger seminars and events organized by the State will be cancelled until the end of May 2020. The competent authorities, Regional State Administrative Agencies, have prohibited all public events of over 500 persons for a period of one month. Traficom foresees that the prohibition will be extended to cover the dates of this event. For this reason we are compelled to announce that the TRA2020 event is cancelled.

The organisers are currently focusing on immediate actions required due to cancellation of the event, together with considerations on how the objectives of the conference could otherwise be realised. The organisers will be in contact with all participants in the near future.

We regret the disadvantage that this may cause to participants, speakers and exhibitors.

TRA2020-konferenssi huhtikuussa 2020 on peruutettu

Suomen hallitus on 12.3. linjannut, että valtion järjestämät isot seminaarit ja tapahtumat perutaan toukokuun loppuun saakka. Aluehallintovirastot toimivaltaisina viranomaisina ovat kieltäneet tapahtumat seuraavan kuukauden ajalta. Traficom ennakoi kiellon jatkuvan myös konferenssin tapahtuma-aikana. Tästä syystä joudumme ilmoittamaan tapahtuman peruuntumisesta.

Järjestäjät keskittyvät tällä hetkellä huhtikuun konferenssin perumistoimiin ja mahdollisiin toimenpiteisiin, miten konferenssin tavoitteita voitaisiin muuten edistää. Järjestäjät ovat yhteydessä osallistujiin lähiaikoina.
