EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW

For all of us and our families, our health is our most important issue. The Decanter team and the staff of the event venue are dedicated to making the event safe. So, we wanted to share our plans:

We will follow the venue’s guidelines and county mandates. In accordance with the updated guidance from New York City, as of March 7th, 2022, proof of vaccination for guests will no longer be required at Manhatta.

We will also provide personal spittoons for each Grand Tasting and Masterclass attendee as well as numerous hand-sanitizer stations around the venue. 

We recommend that you keep checking this page for updates on a regular basis as government mandates are subject to change. 

Covid guidelines and restrictions
Future (owner of Decanter) is following the local and government restrictions and guidelines on the current pandemic closely. However, attendance at our event is at your own risk and Future is not liable if you believe you have contracted Covid-19 at our event. The guidance and restrictions are likely to change and therefore Future reserves the right to remove or impose additional restrictions or rules to ensure the accessibility and safety of everyone at the event.
