    Health and Safety Guidelines

    ACAMS is offering in-person attendance at the Annual AML & Financial Crime Conference 2021 in Abu Dhabi, UAE in compliance with UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention permitting limited gatherings.


    Effective August 20, 2021, the Conrad’s safety protocols and the UAE Ministry of Health and Prevention guidelines require all attendees of the event to be fully vaccinated, display a green pass (proof of negative PCR test) in their Al Hosn apps and wear a mask at all times except when eating or drinking. All attendees and staff are still expected to fully comply with applicable safety precautions, such as staying home if exhibiting signs of illness. Masks are provided for anyone in need of one and sanitization stations will be available throughout the meeting space.


    At this time capacity is restricted inside the hotel, 2m social distancing. Seats are confirmed at the time of purchase. Additional seats will be released as the UAE government permits. In the event the UAE re-instates a lower capacity limit, which could impact the number of attendees permitted at the ACAMS Conference 2021 you would be notified as to the status of your registration. If local capacity restrictions require ACAMS to reduce the number of attendees and you are unable to attend the conference in person, you will be provided the ability to transfer your pass to the next in-person event or a full refund.
