How can I get access to the event?

Due to the recent Covid Policy by the State of California and by the City and County of San Francisco, we will only admit ticket holders who are fully vaccinated to droidcon SF 2022, proof is mandatory.

Please note the following health and safety regulations that we are following:

  • Access to the venue is restricted to fully vaccinated persons (Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson&Johnson) only (digital proof of vaccination plus ID will be requested at registration).

  • Masks are mandatory everywhere inside the venue - we will also offer masks at the registration desk (volunteers will help to remind all attendees to wear the masks at all times)

  • We will ask all participants to voluntarily test themselves at home before attending dcSF22 and to come to the event really negative only.

  • Registration process: the UCSF daily health screener must be completed on all conference days. Please complete the screener every day before you enter the venue (also on June 1 for setup). Staff at the registration desk must ask each attendee to show an entry pass that they have completed the screener.

  • Food and beverages can only be served and consumed outside the venue: No water or coffee in the conference room must be consumed outside, Atrium, Robertson foyer. Collection areas outside each room entrance will be set up. No breakfast or lunch items may be consumed inside, no exceptions. 

  • The distribution and serving of food and drinks in the sponsor area are not allowed at all

  • The Mission Bay Conference Center is operated by UCSF (Medical background) and like us has the absolute goal that the dcSF is conducted completely without Covid cases. To support this, we are required to obtain additional Attendee data to scan at-risk individuals as appropriate.
