The 2021 annual congress of the Italian Resuscitation Council (IRC) took place in person in Rimini, Northern Italy, between December 16th and 18th. Rigorous measures were adopted to grant the safety of participants, including a mandatory EU Digital COVID Certificate, wearing surgical or FFP2 masks, temperature measurement, hand cleaning and social distancing. However, the attendance of asymptomatics who may transmit the virus and trigger outbreaks was possible despite preventive measures. Therefore, to assess the safety of organising face-to-face congresses during the COVID-19 pandemic, we conducted an online survey among participants registered to the congress.
