Health/Safety procedures & pandemic-related requirements

It is the responsibility of the registrant to determine travel requirements and to comply with them to enter Belgium and to return to your home country.

GS1’s priority is the health and safety of our attendees, employees and staff working the General Assembly 2022.

In partnership with the Dolce La Hulpe Brussels, GS1 will adhere to any venue or location-specific regulations as well as the official government guidance. We will continue to monitor the ever-evolving situation and guidelines so please check back regularly and before you attend the conference for the latest guidance.

All delegates, speakers and invited guests must wear their badges at all events and optional activities of the GS1 General Assembly.

Extra measures we are taking to help protect your health and safety

  •  Food & Beverages: All meals will be served single-plate style, no buffets. For this reason, we cannot offer a variety of food to choose from at each occasion. The menues will be the same for everyone, unless you have a dietary restriction and note this in your registration. We will do our best to meet your dietary needs. If you have not yet noted your dietary restrictions in your registration, you must do so before Friday, May 13th (end of day Brussels time).  Click here to revise your registration. 
  • All meals and receptions, when possible will be held outside. 
  • Seating for all activities will be spaced approximately 1 meter distance apart. 
  • We will provide contactless registration onsite for you to pick up your badge. You will need your registration confirmation email in order to print your badge. We will email this to you the week before the event. 

Strong recommendations for all in-person participants

  • Take one COVID self-test daily (tests are available at the GS1 desk) 
  • If you test positive for COVID, OR if you have symptoms, stay in your hotel room. Do not join the event in-person; participate via the virtual platform. Notify us at generalassembly@gs1.org for assistance.  
  • Wear a mask when you cannot maintain a social distance of 1 meter. (Masks are available at the GS1 desk.)
  • Greet with elbow bumps only! (No handshakes, no kisses, no hugs.)
  • Wash and sanitise hands regularly.

These are the current requirements and they are subject to change if local or national regulations change, and in that case we will notify you by email and on this website.
