Second Floor Policy

Access to the Ballroom Level of the InterContinental Barclay Hotel

The DCAT organization has made an exclusive buy-out of the InterContinental Barclay, the host hotel for the 2022 DCAT Week event. This includes meeting rooms, ballrooms, and a substantial amount of hotel sleeping rooms. Therefore, beginning at DCAT Week 2022, the organization will preclude representatives of non-member companies from utilizing the 2nd Floor pre-function areas near the business meeting rooms, the Ballroom, and the Member Lounge. In adherence of COVID-19 protocols and for the safety of our members, all DCAT Week attendees must wear their registered Member Company Name Badge and complete the vaccine check-in. Program and event attendees will be required to provide proof of identification and vaccination at DCAT programs, events, and lounges, including the 94th DCAT Annual Dinner, and all hosted areas.

  • DCAT Member Company representatives wishing to access the member-only areas of the InterContinental 2nd floor - including the pre-function areas, education programs, lounge, or events - must wear an official DCAT Week Member Name Badge. Employees of Registered Member Companies can obtain a Member Company Name Badge by pre-registering at or by registering onsite at the DCAT Staff Office located in the InterContinental Barclay (Barclay Salon, 1st Floor) or outside of the Member Company Lounge at the Lotte New York Palace Hotel (Villard Ballroom, 2nd Floor).
  • Members or non-members without badges but who have business meetings in specified locations are not required to have name badges and will have access to those specified meeting rooms.
  • Any DCAT Week attendees wishing to access the restrooms on the 2nd Floor of the InterContinental Barclay are asked to do so by using the Lexington Avenue side elevators in the lobby.
  • DCAT Week attendees using the center elevators located off the landing of the Grand Staircase should note that these elevators will not stop on the 2nd Floor Ballroom Level.
  • Access to the 2nd level of the Grand Staircase (beyond the landing) will only be for DCAT Member Company representatives who are wearing the official DCAT Week Member Name Badge.
  • The DCAT organization and its representatives reserve the right to deny access to those who are not registered members of the Drug, Chemical & Associated Technologies Association, Inc.
  • Membership information and application are available at HERE.
