What COVID precautions will the conference take?
As a commitment to ensuring the safety of Summit participants to the best of our ability, Summit organizers are requiring that masks are worn during all Summit sessions. Everyone attending the Summit must also provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19, or the results of a negative PCR test taken no longer than 72 hours before arriving in Morocco.
While the Government of Morocco currently does not require this to enter the country, for the safety of Summit participants, we have made the decision to maintain these protocols to enter the Summit venue.
Proof of Vaccination
Individuals who have received all recommended doses of a COVID-19 vaccine listed for emergency use by the World Health Organization (WHO) are considered to be fully vaccinated. Only those who are fully vaccinated (receiving their most recent dose between March and December 2022), or have received a booster during that time period will be permitted to attend the Summit in-person (unless you provide a negative PCR test as noted above). You will be required to provide proof of vaccination, which will be reviewed by designated trained personnel when you arrive to pick up your Summit registration badge.
PCR Tests On-Site
PCR testing will be available for a fee starting on December 2 on site at the Summit venue. Costs of these tests are indicated below. Accepted forms of payment include Moroccan Dirham, USD, Euro, and credit cards.
- Same-day: $50 USD (results will be available by 9:00 p.m. local time or sooner)
Recent COVID-19 Infection
If you are not fully vaccinated/have the booster and are unable to produce a negative test due to recent COVID-19 infection, you must present a letter from a doctor indicating that you have fully recovered from COVID-19.
During the Summit:
If you feel sick at any point during the Summit, for any reason, please do not come into the Summit venue to avoid potentially infecting other participants. If you test negative for COVID-19 and your symptoms improve, you can resume the regular Summit schedule. If you test positive, please do not attend the Summit.
The Summit has secured the services of a medical team trained in providing first-aid and implementing COVID-19 prevention protocols. This team will train and supervise personnel to ensure high touch surfaces are properly cleaned and disinfected between sessions; hand sanitizer stations remain stocked; masks are available and worn properly; room capacities are respected; etc. Each of the conference rooms within the Palais des Congres, and the Grand Mogador Menara will be equipped with HEPA 13 air filtration units.
Additional safety protocols will be enforced. Face masks will be required during sessions and should only be removed when actively eating or drinking.
Disposable masks will be available.
In addition, please confirm entry requirements set forth by the Government of Morocco.
