The ticket seller and concert organizer CTS Eventim wants to make a corona vaccination a prerequisite for participating in events. “If there is enough vaccine and everyone can be vaccinated, then private organizers should also have the opportunity to make a vaccination as a requirement for access to events,” said Eventim boss Klaus-Peter Schulenberg of the “Wirtschaftswoche”. The company has already set up its systems so that they can also read vaccination cards.
In Schleswig-Holstein, the Ministry of Health has commissioned CTS Eventim to allocate vaccination appointments. For the company, this is a new business area in times when the events industry is largely idle due to the corona restrictions. We are in talks with other federal states to cooperate when more vaccine is available, said Schulenberg. “The faster the population is vaccinated, the faster events can take place again.” Above all, however, it is about “making a contribution so that we can all overcome this pandemic as soon as possible,” he said.
