Health and safety prototcols

We want to share with you the measures we have put in place to keep us all safe at our upcoming CANSO events. This document outlines Spanish government requirements, and additional measures that the Melia Castilla has introduced, as well as additional measures CANSO is applying.

Spanish Government Requirements:

  • Even though in Spain it is no longer mandatory to wear a face mask, except for on public transport, (for the general safety of all participants) it is recommended to wear a face mask when attending the CANSO Executive Summit and AGM.
  • Masks MUST be worn on all forms of public transport, including taxis and other car services. Eating and drinking on public transport is not permitted. You may be refused transport if you do not wear a mask.

Additional CANSO advice:

CANSO advises delegates to not attend the CANSO events or meetings  if you have tested positive for COVID-19, are waiting for COVID-19 test results, have COVID-19 symptoms, or if you have had close contact with a person who has tested positive for or who has symptoms of COVID-19.


Physical contact restriction

There are now no restrictions on distancing. However, we highly recommend that you respect others’ choices regarding physical contact including handshakes.


To minimise contact at the start of our event, a dedicated registration team will be in place to register you and to hand you your name badge. The organisers will carry out all the necessary protocols to ensure that health and safety measures are followed at all times.


Enhanced cleaning

Our team will work closely with the Melia Castilla Hotel to ensure continuous sanitisation of our event spaces, including restrooms, door handles, food service areas, conference room tables, AV equipment, and common areas.

Hand sanitation

Hand sanitising stations will be placed throughout the event space.

Air quality and ventilation

To guarantee safety and hygiene, and particularly the air quality in meeting rooms, the Melia Castilla Hotel has opened the external ventilation system at 100% with air renewal every 5 minutes, 12 times per hour.
