COVID-19 Information


This year-and-a-half of sanitary crisis has left a durable impression, and we are still adjusting to its consequences. We feel therefore very lucky to be able to organize Cartoon Springboard “for real” in Valencia.
Of course, we’ve adapted the whole organization of Cartoon Springboard to make it Covid-safe. We invite you to follow and respect all measures decided by the Spanish local and governmental authorities to help us in making this edition as safe and enjoyable as possible.

Travelling to Spain
  • For all participants coming from a European country, we invite you to carefully read the information on this page (you can also download the app): Re-open EU provides information on the various measures in place, including on quarantine and testing requirements for travellers, as well as the EU Digital COVID certificate. You can easily see what is needed travelling from one country to another one.
  • All the persons who travel by plane to Spain must complete the Health Control Form from 48 hours beofre travelling to Spain.
  • In addition, please make sure you can deliver to the authorities (or at the airport company) one of the following document (EU Digital COVID Certificate):
        - vaccination proof (at least 14 days prior to arrival in Spain)
        - proof of a negative COVID-19 test result before travelling;
        - recovery certificate

During the event
  • We follow closely the official recommendations from the Spanish government for event organization and gathering regulations:

    - The flow of circulation is regulated;
    - Masks are mandatory indoors, also when people are seated, and outdoors in the University of Valencia;
    - Social distancing is recommended (1,5 meters if wearing a mask and 2 meters without mask);
    - Regular use of hydro-alcoholic gel is also recommended;
    - Lunches and dinners will still be organized and a distance will be respected between all tables. The maximum number of table hosts is 8 persons inside, 10 persons outside;
    - We will propose outside coffee breaks and dinners as much as possible.

  • No Health Pass is required to enter the conference venue nor restaurants, as it is not mandatory in Valencia. But the conference room and restaurants have reduced their maximum capacity (50% for restaurants and 75% for conference room);
  • Cartoon will compile a list of drugstores (around the Hotel, and near the University where the event takes place) that offer PCR tests. Some drugstores do tests only by appointment, we strongly advise you to make your appointments in advance, as they are already very busy. Consider that there is often a delay between the test and the creation of the QR code.


Cartoon Springboard will take place from 26th to 28th of October 2021 in Valencia (Spain).
