PLEASE NOTE: ASME has not engaged any housing bureaus to represent or sell OMAE hotel guest room blocks. Please make your hotel reservations directly through the OMAE hotel links.
The OMAE 2022 Conference Venue is the Congress Center Hamburg (CCH). CCH is connected to all parts of Hamburg by bus and train with the InterCity and S-Bahn station "Dammtor" just 500 hundred meters from the CCH front doors. With such convenient transit access, the conference organizers have decided to give participants the option of choosing their own accommodation in Hamburg and not booking an official conference hotel.
The Hamburg Convention Bureau has created a Google Map with a great selection of hotels from 5 star to 2 start to help you find the accommodation that meets your needs and budget. The most convenient hotel is the Radisson Blu, which is just a three minute walk to the CCH.
Visit the CCH website for more information on how to get to the CCH by public transit.
The ASME OMAE 2022 Conference is to be held at the Congress Center Hamburg in Hamburg, Germany. Accordingly it is subject to the laws, regulations and guidelines pertaining to Covid-19 of the Country of Germany and the City of Hamburg. These mandates are subject to change, please continuously monitor the restrictions found on the Hamburg website.
You will see mention of 2G and 2G Plus guidelines. 2G stands for Geimpfte and Genesene (literally vaccinated persons and recovered persons), and means that indoor facilities for which this access plan applies to will only admit those who are fully vaccinated (two shots) or fully recovered from a previous infection with COVID-19. 2G Plus means that in order to enter the indoor facility a person must be either fully vaccinated or fully recovered and submit an additional negative test result. This test (either PCR or antigen test) must be conducted by a professional service provider, for example a test centre. The obligation to submit a negative test result does not apply to persons who have already received their booster shot (either a third vaccination shot or, in the case of the Johnson & Johnson vaccination, a second vaccination shot).
The complete list of Corona Rules and Regulations in Hamburg can be found on the Hamburg website.
