Health & Safety Measures

We are excited and prepared to return to in-person conferences this year. Over the coming months we will continue to monitor and adhere to government, venue and health agency guidelines and recommendations as we plan our in-person programs.

As a part of our commitment to creating the safest possible environment for our community given current infection rates around the globe, we will be requiring all attendees, exhibitors, staff and partners participating in this year’s in-person conferences to present proof of at least 2 doses of vaccination (and that a minimum of 2 weeks have passed since the second dose) and agree to follow our Health & Safety Policy, in addition to wearing masks, measuring body temperature, and sanitizing hands prior to entry into the venue. 

  • To prevent transmission of the virus, you will be denied entry if you:

    • Have a temperature of 37.5 degrees Celsius (99.5 Fahrenheit) or higher, or 1 degree Celsius higher than normal temperature,
