Cost absorption

On 01 June you will be catered for the whole day. All other costs won´t get reimbursed and have to be paid by your own credit card, e.g. minibar in the hotel.
If your team is planning an off-site, please check with the team lead which costs will be covered and which cost center will apply.

Dresscode

There is no dress code. However, please keep in mind that we are planning the party in our courtyard. Bring something warm to wear if necessary.

Health and Safety

In Germany, there is currently no longer a corona test obligation. The obligation to wear a mask also no longer applies in most cases.

You are only obliged to use FFP2 masks in airplanes, trains and local traffic. Normal OP masks are not allowed.

If you want to do a documented quick test, you can use the free test center at Alexanderplatz: https://schnelltestberlin.de/en/alexander-platz/.

This is not a laboratory-tested PCR test.

Activities

Do you stay longer in Berlin and want to experience as much as possible?
Do you want to get to know colleagues outside your team?
The whole thing should feel like "Berlin Living" and not like "Tourist in Berlin"?

Then take a look at what Maike Hartung and other Berlin colleagues
suggest: https://wiki.commercetools.com/display/PO/Berlin+Tips.

And here you can sign up or create a group if you want to take action: https://wiki.commercetools.com/display/PO/Berlin+-+Planned+activities+around+the+summer+party+2022.

Important Contacts

If you plan an off-site with your team, please inform us.
Keep in mind that the office space is already well booked and we have to clean, clear and set up everything on the 31. May and clean the space at the 2. June. It might be noisy.
