Additional event information

A hybrid event combines the onsite experience of an in-person gathering with the ability to also participate virtually.

As well as meeting with others who are physically present at the venue, delegates attending the event can also seamlessly schedule additional meetings with people elsewhere. Likewise, attendees taking part virtually may also meet with others located anywhere around the world and participate in the seminar programme.

For those attending virtually, our events use a combination of Marcom eSchedule PRO and Zoom to provide an engaging networking experience for all participants. This combination offers you direct and total control over the types of partners you meet during the event based on their main activity and country of origin, as well as the peace of mind of using a secure and stable platform for your meetings.

Once registered, you will receive log-in details enabling you to access our meeting scheduling system two weeks prior to the event through your myICEF portal.

What precautions are being taken to ensure the in-person event can be delivered safely?

The health and safety of our delegates is our primary concern and we are taking regular advice to ensure that our event conforms to the latest health guidance provided by the local authorities. Precautions we are taking include:

  • Delegates must be fully vaccinated (with a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency – EMA) or show proof of recent recovery from Covid-19.
  • Provision of hand sanitiser stations throughout the venue.
  • Ensuring all spaces conform to social distancing guidelines by reconfiguring booth and table layouts as well as queuing systems. This will ensure adequate distancing and will discourage the formation of groups, whilst preserving the ability for delegates to comfortably browse products and services of interest.
  • Operating a one-way transit system in busy areas.
  • Ensuring that all delegates are able to maintain a distance of at least 1.5m from other attendees during meetings and seminar sessions.
  • Making some seminars available on demand for those delegates who do not wish to attend sessions in-person.  
  • Providing guidance to all delegates on social distancing and infection control best practices.
  • Providing medical face masks to be optionally worn by all participants during the event, to reduce the risk of virus transmission. We recommend that these should be worn when moving around the event venue or whenever social distancing is not possible.
  • Ensuring enhanced cleaning and regular disinfection of high-touch areas.
  • Subjecting food & beverage options and their delivery to tightened safety standards.

What happens if this event cannot take place in person?

We will follow the latest advice provided by local health authorities and will only allow the in-person aspects of this event to take place if it is safe to do so. In the event that local authorities restrict in-person networking, our hybrid event platform allows for us to seamlessly deliver this event in an online only format.

What happens if a delegate cannot attend in person?

If an in-person participant cannot attend due to travel restrictions or other reasons, we can switch the attendance seamlessly to take part virtually instead without the need to reschedule meetings. You may also transfer your booking to another in-person ICEF event.

FAM Tours and Receptions, are two ways you can increase your organisation’s profile by hosting invited ICEF event participants to a private gathering either at your school/campus or a location of your choice.
