Preventive Measures at the Conference
Of course, it's important for us to stay cautious and make the environment safe for everyone, so the in-person event will offer all the safety measures in accordance with the local regulations. The specifics are not yet clear, and we should know more in late summer. However, we are ready to take the following measures at the in-person part of the event, should they be required by the authorities:
- Proof of vaccination or recent negative test will be checked upon entry to the venue
- Temperature checks will be performed during registration
- Wearing face masks will be advisable in the closed spaces of the venue
- Sanitizer dispenser stations will be available inside the venue
Our team will ensure that the measures are as efficient and unobtrusive as possible.
We understand that along the way, there might be obstacles for some attendees. We offer refunds in the following cases:
- You can no longer enter the United Kingdom due to covid-related policy changes
- The in-person part get canceled due to covid-related policy changes
Any attendee with a valid in-person ticket will be refunded the price difference between the in-person and the full-access remote ticket, so that they can take part in the event online.
Alternatively, the in-person ticket can be swapped for a full-access remote ticket and an annual GitNation Multipass, providing access to 7 additional remote events and tens of talk & workshop recordings from our past conferences.
