We are looking forward to welcoming you to the Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF15) on the 7th and 8th December.
Entrance will be strictly limited to registered delegates who hold both the ticket* and a corresponding photo ID.
Please ensure you bring both Photo ID (Passport, driving licence or ID card) and this ticket either on your phone or printed. No on-the-door registrations will be accepted. Similarly, no delegate will be allowed to enter the Stadium with someone else’s badge.
*You should receive your ticket via email on 1st December. If you think you should have received an updated ticket and you haven't, please contact Sophie Tollet firstname.lastname@example.org urgently.
All delegates and their bags will be searched at Gate E, the entrance to SIF. Luggage will be stored in a room outside of the stadium, and will not be allowed in, so while you can bring your luggage with you, there will be a separate entrance for press and people with luggage. These measures mean that entrance to the Stadium may take longer.
You may also find that more people are driving than are taking public transport, so the roads may be busy, and with so many people in Paris fir COP21, there many delays so please leave extra time for your journey. Registration will open from 07:30 and the opening session starts at 08:30 so please ensure you are prompt to ensure entry.
While ordinarily we would suggest that you use public transport wherever possible, we have been advised that crime on the lines to Stade de France does exist. Similarly, Saint Denis, the area around Stade de France has relatively high levels of crime. Taking account of the recent terrorist events the overall security has been strengthened. Nevertheless, it is preferable to use taxis rather than public transportation. In addition to the existing threat, public nervousness is currently at a very high level and public transport may often be disrupted due to bomb alerts.
We would suggest downloading Uber before you travel and/or finding a taxi company close to your accommodation. Entrance is at Porte E. The address is:
Stade de France
ZAC du Cornillon Nord
Avenue Jules Rimet
93216 Saint-Denis La Plaine Cedex
