We are extremely happy to announce that the Autumn Meetings 2021 will take place at Hotel Melia Lebreros, Seville, Spain from 27 – 29 October 2021.
The core topic of our meetings will be Sustainability in TCI and Surety business.
Below we set out the basis for our decision to go ahead with a face-to-face event, the safety measures we are taking and the behaviour guidelines we ask all attendees to follow to ensure this event is a healthy, fun and successful time for all. We kindly ask you to read this email carefully. Please contact us directly for any questions you may have.
What was the criteria to proceed with the Autumn Meetings in Seville?
• Government recommendations for travelling (to Spain; to Andalucía; and, from countries of origin amongst our members)
• Adequacy of precautionary measures taken by the hotel and restaurant
• Number of participants to the meeting.
While the governmental recommendation for travelling to and from Spain from most countries where ICISA members are based (particularly those in the EU) are quite relaxed, we have also been impressed by the diligence and care taken by the hotel and restaurant in light of the current situation. Together, these aspects gave us the confidence to proceed.
To support members, we’ve created a short document which summarise the governmental rules to travel to and from Spain, for most of the countries where our members are likely to travel from. While we have tried to provide as much information as possible, we ask those intending to travel to check your official governmental websites before travelling so you are aware of any late changes in guidance from your region in the meantime.
We have had several discussions with the hotel and restaurant in recent weeks leading up to this decision. A complete listing of corona precautionary measures taken by them is included on our website, under Agendas and documents.
We have also prepared behavioural guidelines to facilitate a safe environment during meetings. We kindly ask you to read these carefully before travelling and to let us know if you have any questions or concerns.
