We are putting in place a series of measures to ensure that ACCES 2021 is safe for all participants. We understand that some participants may find parts of the protocols uncomfortable but we hope you will appreciate that strict measures are necessary to achieve a safe environment for everyone attending ACCES 2021.

The following measures are in place:

  1. All participants must be prepared to show proof of full vaccination completed at least 14 days prior to the day or proof of a negative test received 72 hours prior to the date. For clarity, this means that one of the documents will suffice (you do not necessarily need to have both). The authenticity of these documents may be verified.
  2. Venue capacity rules shall be put in place and followed. 
  3. Wearing of masks will be mandatory in certain venues or rooms. These spaces will be clearly marked.
  4. Regular sanitisation is encouraged at all times. ACCES shall provide sanitasation stations across all venues
