We’re committed to providing you with the best possible experience. As such, health and safety are our top priority for the live event. We have a dedicated safety taskforce that will be working to ensure compliance with CDC guidelines, state and local regulations, and the Fairmont Hotel.

What safety protocols will I be expected to follow?

To limit exposure and protect you and others, all attendees, staff, and speakers are required to wear masks at all times while indoors, except while actively eating and drinking. Masks will be provided for any attendee who needs one.

At the event, we will have free onsite testing. All speakers and attendees are required to either show proof of a negative test taken no more than 24 hours prior to the start of our event or take a Covid-19 test when they arrive.

In keeping with San Francisco city orders, the Fairmont Hotel requires all event attendees to provide proof of full vaccination before being allowed entry. Accepted forms of vaccination record include:

• The original, a copy, or a picture of your CDC vaccination card
• Documentation of full vaccination from a healthcare provider
• Personal digital Covid-19 vaccine record issued by the State of California or by an approved private company

Will onsite testing be available?

Yes, we will have free onsite testing available for attendees and speakers beginning Sunday, February 27th and running through Tuesday, March 1st.

What happens if I test positive for Covid-19 at RampUp?

If you test positive, you unfortunately will not be able to physically attend or speak at RampUp in order to keep everyone safe. You will be asked to join us online through our event platform.

If I bring a negative test, do I need to be vaccinated to attend RampUp in person?

In keeping with San Francisco city orders, the Fairmont Hotel requires all event attendees to provide proof of full vaccination before being allowed entry. Accepted forms of vaccination record include:

  • The original, a copy, or a picture of your CDC vaccination card
  • Documentation of full vaccination from a healthcare provider
  • Personal digital Covid-19 vaccine record issued by the State of California or by an approved private company


Will parts of the event take place outside?

We are working on options for attendees to network or take meetings outside—stay tuned!

Can windows be opened in rooms that have them?

If weather permits, windows can be kept open. 

What can I expect from the venue?

In addition to following the safety protocols above, hotel staff will be cleaning and disinfecting surfaces throughout the venue frequently, with a deep clean overnight. 

The hotel is also operating on a limited capacity. We are limiting in-person tickets to RampUp to 1,500—half of what our event has been in the past. The filters used in its HVAC system comply with recommended MERV ratings for the units that supply air throughout the building. 

Additionally, the Fairmont Hotel is #allsafe certified. This means that they follow some of the most stringent cleaning standards & operational procedures in the hospitality industry. For more information on the certification, visit Accor’s website here.

How can I sanitize on site?

There are bathrooms on both floors for you to wash your hands. We will also  provide sanitizer stations throughout the event.

How can we help keep each other safe?

We encourage all attendees to use alternative ways to greet business partners. Try a fist bump, nodding and waving, or bumping elbows. Get creative!

We also encourage using digital alternatives to printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures.
