Global Waste Management Symposium (GWMS) will adapt the Informa AllSecure Plan at our February 2022 event. As the world’s leading events organizer, Informa has developed a detailed set of enhanced measures to provide the highest levels of hygiene and safety at its events, providing everyone with reassurance and the confidence they are participating in a safe and controlled environment.

You can expect to see that health and safety is a priority this February and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive and high-quality organized event experience.

We will publicly share our fully transparent AllSecure Plan, once it has been vetted and approved by local health officials.

GWMS  has increased protocols around health & safety to following the CDPH regulations of Riverside County (Indian Wells, CA) for a large event.

Which includes:

  • Masks are required for all individuals in all indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status
  • Verification of fully vaccinated status* or pre-entry negative test** result is required of all attendees.

Health & Safety Details for GWMS:

  • A Health Screen must be conducted before any individual can partake in the conference onsite and offsite events. That is EITHER a negative Covid-19 test obtained within 24 – 48 hours of arriving at the event OR have proof of full vaccination obtained no later than 14 days prior to arriving at the event.
  • Negative COVID -19 Test verification:
    • PCR/NAAT taken within 48 hours prior to arriving at GWMS
    • Antigen (rapid) taken within 24 hours prior to arriving at GWMS
    • Indoor venue and event operators may not use self-attestation as a mode of verification.
  • Vaccination status can be verified in the following ways:
    • Proof via an app; Excelsior, Clear, California Dept of Health Digital Record, CommonPass, VeriFLY
    • Hard copy of your vaccination record
    • A clear photocopy of your vaccination record – front and back
    • A clear picture or digital copy of your vaccination record – front and back
      *People are considered fully vaccinated: 2 weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series, such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine
  • Screening will be done onsite by GWMS event staff before participating in GWMS. Checks will be visual only with no information recorded or documented.
  • After satisfying your health screening, you will be given a credential (festival type wrist band to be worn the duration of the event).
  •  Once you have your credential, nothing else is required. You will be able to enter the building freely throughout the week by just showing your wrist band.
