Security check

On top of the usual badge check at the entrance of the Congress area, as well as the Trading Floors and Closed Meetings, Delegates will have to go through a whole airport-like mandatory security check at the very entrance of the Congress venue.

These security measures comply with the official procedures applied in France.

It goes without saying that it might take a few minutes for each and every Delegate to go through the security check. Hence, we kindly advise you to allow yourself some extra time to pass it.

Moreover, please note that the security check will be mandatory every time a Delegate enters the building, independently of the time and the fact that a badge is worn.

The security check will also have to be passed to attend the Welcome Reception on the Thursday evening.

We strongly recommend all Delegates come one hour ahead of the official opening times.

In relation to the security checks, the Congress center will open earlier than usual to allow the incoming Delegates into the Congress center.

To avoid any stress and rush, we encourage you to print out and pick-up your badge. About 15 days before the Congress, you will get your badge via email. Remember to have it at hand along with your photo ID to speed up the line at access points.

The badge is mandatory to access the conference rooms and the exhibit area.
