Eisbein cancelled

Eisbein cancelled

(Posted on 13/09/21)

After careful consideration, and with much regret, the board of the Hamburg and Bremen Shipbrokers´ Association (VHBS) has decided to cancel the EISBEIN dinner planned for November 5, 2021.

The VHBS chair, Christian Koopmann, explains: “Although hopes have risen recently that the measures to contain the COVID pandemic would be relaxed through the introduction of new rules, we still cannot rule out the possibility that new or further restrictions or requirements will be necessary which, even if the number of participants were reduced, would significantly limit the experience of being together. There will be no digital format either, because no video call can replace the enjoyment of meeting face-to-face.”

Potential risks, such as unclear legal regulations in autumn, restricted flight schedules and possible requirements for large-scale events with several hundred participants, for example social-distancing requirements or the abstinence from alcohol, make the planning and implementation of such an event, which depends for its success on the gathering together of people from different countries, almost impossible.

Koopmann concluded: “What a shame, because we were looking forward to it. But we ask for your understanding for the decision, which was really not easy for us. We combine this sad news with the hope that next year we can come together again in the usual way and then in the freshly shining CCH for the EISBEIN dinner. We are currently planning for November 4, 2022 and look forward to welcome you in Hamburg.“
