COVID-19 Policy


Date 25/4/22: Since 20/4/22, it is no longer mandatory to wear masks in enclosed spaces in Spain. In-person congresses, conventions, trade fairs and similar activities in enclosed spaces require that the minimum ventilation levels set out in the current regulations on thermal installations of buildings be guaranteed. When there are more than 1,000 people in attendance at such events:

  • Compliance with enhanced ventilation and air quality conditions is recommended.
  • Crowd control measures must be put in place, both indoors and outdoors.
Nonetheless, the usage of mask at Barcelona is mandatory in the following situations:
  • Public transport
  • Taxis
  • Hospitals and Medical Centers
  • Pharmacies
  • Homes for the elderly

Regulations and guidelines

For all our events, including conferences, workshops, and meetups, we take the COVID-situation seriously. We want to reduce the risk of infection as much as possible, and keep everyone safe.

Here you can check the local measures that apply to us on the basis of our government in Catalonia, we will adhere to their regulations and guidelines, and when deemed necessary, take additional measures at our discretion. As regulations and best practices around COVID management for events evolve constantly, we may change our approach up to the last moment.

If you have any questions or concerns about our COVID-19 policy, please do not hesitate to contact us via info@barcelonajug.org.

What we expect from you

This policy applies to all participants, including visitors, speakers, organisers, vendors, sponsors, and staff.

During the event, as well during your interactions with other participants outside the event, we expect you to adhere to both local governmental measures and our additional measures.

If a participant doesn't comply to the policy, the event organisers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or removing them from the event with no right to a refund.

What you can expect from us

Together with the venue and our suppliers, we will take appropriate measures to create safe conditions for everyone, based on regulations, best practices, and guidelines.

Our measures may include if needed:

What if we cancel or postpone an event?

If the conditions or local regulations make it impossible to organise the event responsibly, the event will be postponed.

After a new date has been announced, the participants will be given the choice to transfer their ticket to the new dates, or to receive a full refund of the ticket cost.

Changes in the program or schedule of an event are not grounds for a full refund, except as stipulated in the Terms and Conditions.


We will not reimburse any expenses that you may have made, such as travel, accommodation, or any other kind. We advise you to choose refundable travel and accommodation options.
