COVID PRECAUTIONS
We are monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Paris, and we will do our utmost to protect every one of you.

We recommend that you take a test prior to the event to ensure you are not positive. This is not a requirement, and we do not need results to be sent. We will have masks and hand sanitizer onsite and potentially self testing kits available for free.

LUNCH

Lunch will be served according to the schedule.

Please remember to remind the volunteers and the lunch team of your allergies / intolerances if you have any, we have taken into account your answers when you bought your ticket.

Please stick to the meal choice you requested during the purchase of your ticket as much as possible, note that vegetarian was merged with vegan.

IMPORTANT: Due to last-minute issues (beyond our control), we will invent some creative trick to make it easier for you to have proper seating and tables to eat, while escaping from the rain, the mud and many non-desirable properties of the weather in Paris, many apologies for the inconvenience, and please watch for further updates on this subject during the conference, especially just before lunch.

ASSISTED ACCESS
If you need special access, please let us know, so we can show you the alternative access points.

COAT CHECK

We will put at your disposal a coat rail to put your coats, but, we do not have secure coat checking, you can check in and check out autonomously but be cautious of your belongings if you decide to use the coat rail.

WEATHER

We do expect stormy rain during the conference, for your comfort, we advise you to have an umbrella or some sort of poncho.
