Covid protocols, risk reduction and safety at ISE 2022

Throughout the pandemic ISE has followed national and international health and safety guidelines, with the health and safety of our exhibitors and attendees at the forefront of our plans for ISE 2022.

The current guidelines are as follows.

Spanish authorities require everyone entering the country to be either recently tested, recovered from Covid, or fully vaccinated. This protocol is controlled at the Spanish border.

ISE expects its exhibitors and attendees to also be tested, recovered, or fully vaccinated. In common with practice at other Spanish and European venues we will not ask for documented proof.

There is no longer a requirement to wear face masks in Spain, except in certain settings such as on public transport. Within the Fira Gran Via there is no requirement for mask wearing or social distancing, although you may wear a mask if you wish to.

Knowing your Covid status is important not only for yourself, but also for those around you. Self-testing is a risk-reduction measure that protects you and others. Testing is critically important, regardless of your vaccination status.

We cannot stress enough the importance of keeping each other safe. So please consider the following suggestions to be of the utmost importance:

  • If you are feeling unwell, or have COVID-19 related symptoms, please stay at home
  • Please test yourself regularly; in case of any doubt, consider taking a PCR or Antigen Test
  • While in Barcelona, please take Catalonia’s COVID-19 health and safety measures into account

Hand sanitiser will be available throughout the show; exhibitors are encouraged to provide it on their stands.
