Best Practices for EBACE Attendees in the Event of Protests

EBACE show organizers are aware of at least one planned climate protest in association with this year’s edition of EBACE. This protest is scheduled to occur in the afternoon on Tuesday, May 23, in the Parc Sarasin, directly across from the entrance to the show.

If you see a protest of any type that the show organizers may not be aware of, inside or outside of the exhibit hall and aircraft display, please contact Chris Strong +1-443-831-1542 or Dan Hubbard +1-202-431-5970 immediately.

The best strategy for dealing with protests is to avoid areas where protests are occurring and have no interaction with protesters, if possible.

Other strategies for dealing with protests of any type at EBACE include:

  • Be aware that protesters may film, photograph or live-stream events. Do not behave in a way that will jeopardize the reputation of you, your company or EBACE. Remain calm and do not engage with protesters.
  • Don’t linger or watch a protest. Police may not be able to distinguish between bystanders and protesters if they move to address a problem.
  • Do not film or photograph protesters or police, even if they are filming guests. Authorities will film/photograph illegal activities as appropriate.
  • Never attempt to physically interact with protesters. Do not grab signs, push or make gestures at them.
  • If protesters are blocking entrances, runways or otherwise impeding guest movements, alert the show organizers and wait in a safe location until the threat has been resolved. Do not attempt to push, argue or run through crowds of protesters.
  • Heed all official instructions. Remain cooperative if stopped by officials for security checks.
  • In the event that protesters cause a major disruption, guests should evacuate to a safe location.
