ASIS International is following the ongoing investigations into the shooting incident on Monday 18 March in Utrecht, NL.
Our sympathies go out to the victims. We are in contact with our local event security provider and the venue, and continue to assess the situation. The safety of attendees is our top priority.
Based on current information, there is no impact on the plan for ASIS Europe 2019.
We will not provide further comment on this matter, unless there is a change to the event plans.

Latest update at 9 May 2022 – as the situation is fluid, we will revisit these rules regularly and update.
Czech Republic, like much of Europe, has removed official measures related to COVID for business events. However, we know that personal circumstances and preferences vary, so in the interests of everyone’s experience, please respect the following guidelines:
Thank you for your understanding and support!

In times of tighter company budgets and policies we know that it may be harder to get approval – our justification letter helps you quickly summarise the value in attending.
We have received several notifications from ASIS Europe 2019 exhibitors that were contacted by companies that claim to be selling the ASIS Europe 2019 attendee list. Please note that ASIS does not sell or share attendee lists with third parties.
Kindly also note that fraudulent calls from companies claiming to be the event housing partners have been reported – these are scam attempts. (TravelEra – https://trvera.com/ and Trade Show Planners tsplanners.com are known scammers.) You can find our list of suggested hotels below.
Unfortunately we see these kind of scams more and more and there is very little we can do to counter them except making you aware. If you are contacted with suspicious offerings such as the one above or companies claiming to be our official hotel agency, please do not hesitate to contact us at [email protected].
ASIS has blocked a limited number of rooms for event delegates in 2 suggested hotels at walking distance from the event venue. It is recommended to reserve early as availability cannot be guaranteed. Book before 30 April 2022 to obtain the guaranteed rates.

Want to offset your carbon emissions from travel ? We invite you to support the Czech non-profit organisation Sazime stromy (= “We Plant Trees”) with a donation.
Sázíme stromy is a non-profit organization and was founded in 2014.
“We plant trees and shrubs in places that we carefully select with municipal authorities and other owners. We get support from companies and involve the employees of the donating companies themselves in the planting. As well as local schools, associations, volunteers and disadvantaged groups of citizens. We act as an intermediary between: sponsors, gardening and tree nursery companies, municipal authorities and volunteers. Our main mission is to restore and plant new tree alleys, plant shelter belts, add trees to orchards and plant trees and shrubs wherever it makes sense. Our intention is to raise an awareness that we can do a lot of good for nature in a simple way.
Since 2014, we have planted 16 314 trees and 12 926 shrubs, thanks to the help from 14 335 volunteers.”
You can find more information about Sázíme stromy here.
