Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our community. The following represent some of the key measures we will be implementing to keep our attendees safe. This protocol may evolve as we will continue to follow any and all CDC guidance and New York City & State regulations.

Proof of Vaccination or Negative PCR Test Required IMPORTANT

The entire FinTech community is thrilled to come together once again in person this Fall. And while virtual events over the last year have offered tremendous value, nothing quite compares to putting smart, like-minded folks in a room together in order to drive innovation forward. In order to do this, while maintaining the safety of our team, partners, and guests, guests will need to be fully vaccinated with an FDA or WHO authorized vaccine in order to attend a show and must show proof of vaccination at their time of entry into the theatre. “Fully vaccinated” means the performance date you are attending must be:
  • at least 14 days after your second dose of an FDA or WHO authorized two dose COVID-19 vaccine, or
  • at least 14 days after your single dose of an FDA or WHO authorized single dose COVID-19 vaccine.

The only exception to the above will be for guests under the age of 12, or those who need reasonable accommodations due to a medical condition or sincerely held religious belief. Guests requesting an exemption must provide proof of at least one of the following, in addition to properly wearing a mask inside the building:

  • negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance, or
  • negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test taken within 6 hours of the performance.

Guests may present proof of vaccination or a negative test on paper or a smartphone. For example, New York State residents, or anyone who received a COVID-19 vaccine in New York State, may present proof through the use of the Excelsior Pass.




In addition to proof of vaccination, all guests must also present a government-issued photo ID, such as a driver’s license or passport.

Cleaning & Hygiene

Enhanced Cleaning: We will undertake enhanced deep cleaning before, during and after the conference, working with venue partners to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness. This includes continuous sanitization throughout the course of the event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food & beverage areas.

Personal Hygiene: We will provide additional hand sanitizing stations throughout the event space, encouraging all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.

Physical Distancing

Registration Process: We will use self service terminals to minimize queuing and contact during the registration process.

Food and beverage: Our team will work closely with venue partners to employ the highest standard of food safety, including by minimizing self-service buffets in favor of pre-packaged food options. 

Protect & Detect

Personal protective equipment (PPE): Face masks will be worn by all venue and conference staff. During the conference, we will continue to follow any New York regulations on wearing PPE. 

Other items of PPE, such as gloves and eye screens, can be worn if participants wish to.
First Aid: We will have a team of qualified first aiders on site and a separate quarantine area. Please do not attend the show if you are feeling unwell. We will follow the New York  State regulations on detecting and managing anyone who shows symptoms of COVID-19.
