That’s why – together with Ernest Kuchar MD, PhD from the Medical University of Warsaw – we’ve developed Procedures related to Sanitary-Epidemiological Welfare at Impact’20 Connected Edition which meets 100% of current safety requirements and administrative guidelines.

In addition, every member of staff that will interact with guests on venue grounds will be tested for COVID-19 by Warsaw Genomics prior to the event.
Procedures related to Sanitary-Epidemiological Welfare at Impact’20 Connected Edition
I. PRIOR TO THE EVENT
48h prior to the event every participant will receive an information form which he/she will be requested to fill out electronically – making entrance to the event smoother and easier.
II. PARTICIPANT ENTRANCE
- At the entrance, each participant will have to pass through a disinfecting gate which will spray that participant with an ant-viral and antibacterial solution that isn’t in any way harmful to humans. It will be located right next to the entrance.
- After passing through the gate a member of the medical staff (in a mask, visor and gloves) will – using a contactless thermometer – take the temperature of participants and ask them to disinfect their hands.
- After the participant’s temperature has been verified and his/her hands disinfected he/she will be directed to a station (1 of 3) to sign a declaration-of-health form. There a member of our staff will verify if that participant sent in a form electronically. If yes, that person is directed to registration. If not, that participant is directed to one of 3 stations (located at cocktail tables, to be disinfected after each use). The forms are verified and approved by our staff – only after positive approval is the participant directed to the registration desk.
- Participants who have been approved for entry head for the registration desk. There the participant provides his/her first and last name. He is then searched for and verified using an excel, spreadsheet-based system.
- Following registration the participant picks up his/her protection kit – prepared ahead of time, disinfected and containing: an ID badge, lanyard (showing what level of distancing he/she wishes to maintain), gloves, a mask, disinfectant as well as event guidelines and a map.
