Institutional Investor is committed to the health and safety of our participants at our events. The Events Shield, established in accordance with our parent company, Euromoney, adds a further layer of best practice standards and guidelines, which will be applied across all of our events. Below is a highlight of our protocol for event safety.
Events will maintain a maximum capacity and density of participants will be set up in such a way to allow physical distancing.
At all of our events, we will work with the venue to ensure we maintain the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness.
Our event teams will communicate our health and safety standards, procedures and event guidance clearly to all attendees before the start of the event.
To keep you safe, we’ll need to ensure all our participants, partners and staff follow the Events Shield and local procedures and protocols.
