Safety, welfare, and behaviour

Valencia is a generally very safe city. Yet, like most other major cities, there is petty crime. Therefore, please be aware of thieves and pickpockets at all times. Please pay special attention to your personal belongings, especially when walking in the city centre or using the public transportation system, but also inside the congress venue. Do not wear your badge outside the congress venue, and do not give it to anybody, even if you are leaving the Congress. Any security problems or concerns within the congress venues should be reported to a member of EAACI. Security staff will handle any emergency situation, and everyone is required to follow instructions announced via the public information system. Emergency exits are marked with green exit signs.

In respect of European laws and regulations, as well as due to current health and safety rules and legislation in effect, registration and/or admittance to the EAACI Congress shall be limited solely to participants who are 18 years of age or older. Registration by anyone who is under 18 is unauthorised and in violation of these terms and conditions and will automatically result in the forfeit of their registration. Identification is to be provided to the Congress staff upon request. Participants below 18 years of age will not be granted access to any part of the Congress at any time. This is also valid for children accompanied by their parents and for any other unregistered person. If access to the Congress is needed and no registration is available, registration desk should be contacted. Badges are required to be worn at all times in the congress venues.
