Important Update On The Coronavirus And Our Summits
Luxatia International is committed to hosting business summits in the safest environment possible. The health and wellness of our staff and those attending our events is a top priority.
With this in mind, we have been monitoring the outbreak of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) very closely and provide our deepest condolences for those affected. We will continue monitoring the situation through the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) websites and will provide updates as readily as possible.
ALL EVENTS WILL BE EXECUTED AS PLANNED UNLESS YOU ARE NOTIFIED OTHERWISE
For the wellbeing and safety of our participants’ we must enforce a few rules and ask for your cooperation:
- No travellers from the Hubei area will be permitted access to the event
- All recent travellers to Mainland China will need to prove they have been outside of China for at least 14 days prior to the event (passport stamp, health certificate).
- All attendees will be asked to self-proclaim that they have not been in contact with anyone who is or might be infected.
We have been working closely with the venues for each summit to ensure:
- Extra cleaning and disinfection tactics are being used around the hotel
- Increased availability of hand sanitizers
- Preventative documents are being shared with all event and hotel staff
- Response plans are in place in the chance of a reported illness
There will also be some extra hygienic measures put into place during the event such as:
- An email of preventative information will be shared with all staff, contractors, speakers and delegates beforehand
- Additional reminders at the event about sanitary practices
- A “No-handshake” policy will be in effect at the event
- An acceptable distance for socializing during the networking sessions will also be mentioned (1m/3 feet)
- Disinfecting the microphone between each speaker
- Immediate attention for anyone feeling ill during the event
We advise all travellers to prepare for possible delays while going through airport screenings. We also suggest you monitor the website of the specific airport you’re flying in and out of for travel delays or newly implemented travel rules.
Here are some everyday preventative actions the CDC encourages everyone to do to help prevent the spreading of the disease:
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick (no matter the illness)
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- If you are sick, stay home
- Cough or sneeze into a tissue and then dispose of the tissue immediately
- Clean or disinfect frequently touched objects with spray or wipes
- Wash hands regularly and use hand sanitizer in between washes

We understand many people are concerned about the possibility of a summit or summits being cancelled. No cases of the disease have been found in any of the countries we are hosting in and the WHO suggests health measures be implemented, without the restrictions of international traffic. Given this information, we are not cancelling any summits at this time. We will continue to monitor the situation and if anything changes, alerts will begin to go out immediately.
