Traverse 21 COVID policy

It is of paramount importance to the Traverse team to ensure that all attendees, speakers, sponsors and staff feel safe and comfortable at the event. We urge all attendees to comply by local laws on COVID, which can be found here. To ensure the safety of everyone, we are introducing the following measures:

  1. All attendees must be able to show, on each day of the conference, their COVID vaccination pass or proof of negative COVID test within the past 48 hours. In order to be allowed into the venue, we will be checking these, and issuing a COVID-approved wristband to attendees. You must be able to show via text or email at least one of the following:
  • Proof of completion of a full course of vaccination two weeks prior to arrival
  • Proof of a negative lateral Flow Test or PCR result taken within 48hrs of arrival
  • Proof of natural immunity shown by a positive PCR test result for COVID-19, lasting for 180 days from the date of the positive test and following completion of the self-isolation period.2. We recommend that attendees bring lateral flow tests with them and test daily. This is not compulsory, but is a recommendation to keep all attendees safe. It is of course essential that if you do not feel well or are showing any signs of symptoms, you must not attend the conference. In the instance that you are feeling unwell or test positive for COVID, you must notify the Traverse team immediately ( and follow the local government advice on what to do if you test positive.

    3. The current guidance in Spain is that masks must be worn when indoors at any public venue. While it will not be compulsory in the conference venue (as this is private), we strongly encourage all attendees to wear one when moving around the venue. Seating will be distanced.

    4. We ask that you respect the local laws at all times and respect people’s decision to social distance, everyone will have their own unique levels of comfort as we return to events.

  • This is contradictory. The second graph says we must show a vaccination certificate or proof of a negative test. Then in the itemized requirements it lists BOTH the vaccination course AND the proof of a negative test. I am double vaccinated. Do I need a negative test within 48 hours, too?

      Hi John, sorry that was my bad, it should have read "You must be able to show via text or email at least one of the following" rather than needing to show all of them. Even if you are double vaccinated, we would still appreciate attendees doing COVID tests to ensure we keep everyone safe. I hope that clears it up and we look forward to seeing you there.
