HEALTH PROTOCOL

The pandemic caused by the COVID-19 disease has been receding in Europe and the measures are being eased in the most European countries. However, it is still necessary to keep certain preventive measures and follow some recommendations, especially in the case of the mass events.

The health of our guests and all involved team members and suppliers is of key importance to GLOBSEC. At the same time, we understand that a potential infection and subsequent need of a self-isolation / home-office would present an unwelcome disruption in the working routine of our guests.

GLOBSEC 2022 Bratislava Forum organizers have therefore adopted several measures and recommendations in the execution of the event in order to keep the participants and all involved members of the team, hotel staff, technicians and other providers safe and healthy. For more information, please consult our Health Protocol.

Face masks neither FFP2 respirators will not be mandatory in the external nor internal premises of the conference. However, we strongly recommend to those participants with lower immunity or any health issues to protect themselves by using the masks or respirators, which will be available during the whole Forum.

The organizers will not be requesting the presentation of proof of COVID-19 vaccination.

To avoid the possibility of a spread of COVID-19 at the conference, we recommend all participants to test themselves before arriving to the Forum.

ACCESS TO THE MAIN CONFERENCE VENUE

The Forum is taking place at the Grand Hotel River Park, Dvořákovo nábrežie 6, 811 02 Bratislava. Entry is via the pedestrian zone from the back side of the hotel, where you will need to show your badge. On entrance to the venue you will go through airport style security arches prior to gaining access to the conference.

We ask that you refrain from bringing any luggage with you and make use of your hotel’s left luggage service where possible. Your luggage will be searched, and you are requested not to bring any personal defence items with you as these will be confiscated on arrival.

Please note you will need to wear your badge at all times throughout the event. If you exit the security perimeter you will be required to complete security check each time that you would like to re-enter the Forum.

In case you have booked accommodation in one of our partner hotels, please note that accommodated guests are fully responsible for fees related to the cancellation of their accommodation or no-show. Please note that the organisers are not responsible for the check-in and check-out policy of the partner hotels, therefore cannot guarantee either early check-in or late check-out.

SECURITY INFORMATION

Security of our guest is of paramount importance to the organisers. Therefore, be prepared that you will have to go through security checks every time you enter the Security Perimeter indicated in the map below. We kindly ask you to wear your badge at all times when attending GLOBSEC events.

Access to the Security Perimeter will only be permitted to those wearing their badge provided by the organisers at the Accreditation centre.

MORE POWER TO THE AUDIENCE

Our goal this year is to truly stir up the discussion in the conference rooms and encourage everyone to join the debate. Since we believe the audience plays equal part in the sessions as the speakers on stage, we aim to give more power to you. Over the three days, the sessions will include various features for audience interactivity using the audience engagement platform sli.do. To pose a question or express your opinion, just enter the app via the sli.do website using the event code #GLOBSEC2022 or press “ask a question” in the GLOBSEC app.
