In-Person Meeting in Germany

2021 JCI World Congress Meetup

Dear JCI Europe National Presidents, we are delighted to invite you to the EUROPEAN TO-GATHERING for 2021 JCI World Congress.

After months of hard digital work, we finally have the chance to meet in person and build strong connections with leaders from Europe.

This JCI Europe In-person gathering will be hosted by JCI Germany in Mannheim.

World Congress Meetup

It will be hosted from 18th to 21st of November 2021, with the possibility to arrive earlier.


It will be hosted at the Dorint Kongress Hotel Mannheim.

FYI Mannheim is only one train station away from Frankfurt airport!


This meetup is

  • for all National Presidents,
  • for Deputy Presidents,
  • for 2022 JCI candidates,
  • for 2021 Team Europe.

This great event is dedicated to NPs, DPs, 2021 Team Europe and 2022 JCI Candidates. This event was designed specially for you – as leaders or future leaders of the organization – and all the content is built with this in mind.

We afford you to come also with a +1 of your choice, e.g. one member of your National Board or future National Board.

So please share this message with them and register before the 5th of November.

What's included in the ticket price?

The To-GATHERING Conference is from Thursday until Sunday and the €300 ticket price includes:

  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the venue
  • Soft drinks, coffee and snack breaks during the conference
  • Champagne reception on Saturday
    Saturday night

Safety Measures
Because we are still in a pandemic, here a general safety overview of how the event will be handled in order to be compliant with German rules.
We will create 2 “bubbles” for this event: One just between us at the hotel and one for Saturday evening. There will be a sanitary check at the hotel and also on Saturday evening, to enter the event. When doing the check-in at the hotel, you will be asked the following:
  • If you are vaccinated or cured (<6 months): show the proof of it and a valid antigenic or PCR test.
  • If you are not vaccinated, you need to show a valid PCR test. Attention: You will need to do another PCR test for Saturday evening.

You can do the antigenic test just next door to the hotel (130 m) without an appointment: Corona Testzentrum Mannheim, Rosengartenplatz 2, 68161 Mannheim Cost: 15€ – It takes about 15 – 30 minutes to get the results. You can also do the PCR test there for 88€, but they take 48h to announce the results.

This will allow us to take off the mask in the restaurant, in the rooms and on Saturday night. However, you have to wear the mask when you are walking in the hotel or taking the public transport.
