Postponement of the event
Given the international health situation linked to the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, as well as national and international recommendations from health organizations, Petzl has decided to postpone the Petzl RopeTrip®, scheduled to take place in Singapore. The event, which was to take place from April 13th to 17th, will instead be held from September 28th to October 2nd, 2020 at the same location in Singapore.
Every two years, the Petzl RopeTrip® brings together rope access workers from around the world for a rope access competition and technical symposium. In this friendly space, participants share their techniques and expertise in the vertical world. For the event to take place in the best possible conditions, postponement was the most logical choice.
The local currency is the Singapore Dollar: €1 is worth approximately 1.5 SGD$.
We have negotiated reduced rates for the event. The Camelot team from Safra Adventure Sports Centre will manage all reservations. Click here before January 30, 2020, to have one of the pre-reserved rooms held for you. After January 30, 2020, we will not be able to guarantee you a room at the negotiated rate.
