COVID-19 Policy

To Design Matters, the safety of its attendees, speakers, and staff is a priority.

The latest Government regulations

At the moment, there are no restrictions for this type and size of event.
However, to help prevent the spread of the virus, Design Matters will STILL REQUIRE ALL PARTICIPANTS AND STAFF TO SHOW A NEGATIVE TEST OR A PROOF OF VACCINATION AT THE ENTRANCE. Those without a negative test or proof of vaccination will not be allowed to join the event.

PCR testing is available at airports and clinics, but please note that testing is often needed to be paid. Here is the list of clinics introduced by the government.

Hygienic measures
Hand sanitiser will be at everyone’s disposal in the spaces of the event. All participants will need to wear masks and keep them on as much as possible (except when drinking & eating, but please try to wear them while speaking to others)

The rules
Do not show up if you have symptoms of illness and you have been in areas where there may be a potential risk of infection. We require that participants, speakers, and staff get tested for COVID-19 before attending the event if they have not received the vaccine yet.

We trust the sense of responsibility of the people taking part in the event to act in a way that doesn’t put others in danger. If you have taken a test, and you test positive for COVID-19, please do not attend the physical event (you can still get a Live Stream ticket and enjoy the conference!).

Who can travel to Japan
There are strict measures for travellers coming into Japan.
The latest government enforcement measures can be found here.
