Covid-19 related questions

The restrictions and rules vary from one country to another and might change regularly. Therefore it is important to keep track of those changes by checking ONLY reliable sources. EENA gathered them all here.

Not to participate at the conference. For traveling please check the accurate sources. 

As per the current set of rules set by the French Authorities on 14 March, participants will no longer be obliged to present the European Covid Certificate to enter the event

HOTEL BOOKINGS

Cancellation prior to arrival due to sickness, quarantine, etc (proved with the official doctor statement) = NO PENALTY

Cancellation due to any other reason = 100% OF FULL STAY CHARGED

FLIGHT BOOKINGS

Please pay attention to the type of ticket you are purchasing individually or with EENA’s Travel Agency Partner. The most economic and cheapest faires are unfortunately not easy to reimburse or change. Flexible tickets, however, might be very useful in such fastly changing times and will allow you certain modifications and last-minute cancellations. Please refer this question to your travel agency agent or reservations platform.

The list of countries is provided on the official website of the French Ministry.

On the first day of the conference, we are expecting the biggest crowds in the registration area. In order to skip those lines:

  • Please have your ID card + printed badge in color ready while presenting yourself to the registration area or more simply;
  • Print your badge in advance and pass by the registration area one day prior to the conference, Tuesday 26.04.2022 from 14h00 until 19h00, instead of Wednesday morning to pick up your badge holder, lanyard, and your delegate bag.

EENA partnered with BTS Travel Agency to offer the best service and solutions for the conference participants traveling to Marseille. Please request your flight options HERE.

The cancellation policies are depending on the ticket type booked. If you have booked the cheapest flight possible, it is very likely that there will not be any possibility to change the flight details or to get reimboursed for it in case of personal cancellation. However, if you have booked fully flexible ticket, which you can modify with fees, there is a higher chance for receiving reimboursement in case of potential cancellation. Please note that the flexbile tickets are more expensive though.

The fastest and cheapest option is UBER and public transport (direct shuttle bus station 1 minute away from the TERMINALS). More info here.

The second-largest city in France, Marseille is part of the historical Provence province and is known for its Old Harbour, la Bouillabaisse, and its typically Southern culture of pastis and pétanque.
The city is a regional center for culture, by way of its opera house and its history of attracting artists such as Paul Cézanne and Auguste Renoir. Marseille was the European Capital of Culture in 2013 and chose to celebrate cultural diversity within Europe throughout the year. Home to many museums, cultural landmarks, and unique cuisine, Marseille truly stands out as one of the most distinctive and lively cities in France.

Security related questions

Daytime:

There is no security provided during the day (07:00 – 20:00) and exhibitors should look after their own items at the exhibition and on their stands.

Night-time:

The conference building is closed and one security guard will be supervising the Parc Chanot exposition area during the night.

The purpose of the security is to look after all the exhibition buildings and premises, including of course the EENA event building. But, we highly recommend that exhibitors do not leave any valuable items unattended in the exhibition area and on the stands during the whole exhibition time.

Emergency procedure in case of fire:
1. Call reception 555, or push the fire alarm in the corridor.
2. Do not use elevators!
3. Descend the stairs and direct yourself to the fire-escape on the ground floor
and leave the building.
4. Wait in the park in front of the main entrance for registration.
5. Follow the instructions of the management.
