We strongly recommend that you check the travel requirements for entering Spain before you travel. Please refer to the government website here for the most up to date information.
Our attendees’ safety is our primary concern and we are working closely with the hotel and following government guidance to ensure a smooth and safe event.
In line with the latest government requirements, all attendees will have to wear masks at all times, unless actively eating or drinking.
In addition to this, we will require proof of your vaccination status or evidence of a negative antigen test to enter the event.
If you are a Spanish national or an EU citizen, you can use the covid certificates issued by your respective government. We would strongly recommend you bring a paper copy with you.
If you are vaccinated outside of Spain or the EU, you will need to bring proof of your vaccination with you to the event.
This must be in paper format and include personal information (first and last name etc), type of vaccine, vaccination country and vaccination date. This can be in Swiss national languages, English or Spanish. Only EMA vaccines are accepted i.e. Pfizer, Moderna, Janssen/Johnson&Johnson, AstraZeneca and all licences such as Covishield, etc.
If you are not vaccinated, you will need to prove that you have had a recent antigen test and it was negative. To do this, you will need to take a rapid antigen test on arrival in Madrid and be issued with a temporary certificate (valid for 48 hours). We would recommend you get a rapid antigen test at the airport. To book or find further information, please click here.
Please note, it is essential that you pre-book an appointment. To avoid needing additional tests, you should not take your antigen test any earlier than 18:00 on Monday 18th October to ensure your test is valid for the entire event.
Onsite safety measures
In addition to this, we are implementing increased hygiene protocols. Hand sanitisers will be available throughout the venue and we strongly encourage all delegates to frequently sanitize or wash their hands during the event.
In line with government guidelines, masks are mandatory at all times, unless actively eating or drinking.
‘No handshake’ stickers will be available to guests at the registration desk if desired.
Finally, all delegates will be informed to not attend the event if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
- a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
- a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
