Full steam ahead for GreenTech as Dutch government lifts social distancing rules

AMSTERDAM, Netherlands:  Full steam ahead for GreenTech Live & Online on 28 – 30 September. The Dutch government has lifted social distancing rules effective 25 September and this decision brings the entire Dutch event industry back in motion. From 25 September a relaxation of the quarantine measure has been implemented for vaccinated travellers from very high-risk areas (UK/USA).
