A visitor status has been granted to all registered participants that plan to attend the conference in person, valid for the duration of the conference. They should have received an automatic message with an unique personal code, a visitor card and access instructions. If you have not yet received it, please contact us as soon as possible.
Upon your first visit, you must be able to show your visitor card and personal code, along with a valid identity document, to the security guard on duty at Reception in Building 33. A badge holder is distributed on arrival, so that the visitor card can be worn where it can be easily seen. Any participant who forgets to bring a visitor card, or if the Main Reception is closed, may request that a replacement be printed by entering the personal code at the terminal provided for this purpose at Reception or inside the phone booth located in front of the Building 55 (just by the main car entrance) presenting it to the security guard at Entrance B.
