Health and Safety Measures for the Symposium 

Details on safety requirements needed to enter the conference
along with safety and hygiene measures guests can expect at the venue


The health and safety of our conference delegates, speakers, and staff are paramount. We are setting a standard for safety that exceeds City and State mandates. These measures will continue to evolve as we revise our protocols to follow updated guidance from public health authorities and maintain the most relevant levels of protection for all. As protocols change, this information will be updated.

International Conference Development (ICD) has instituted a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy for all delegates across our conferences


Please bring proof of vaccination to the registration desk when picking up your badge.
At this time, a person is considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after their second dose in a two-dose series, such as the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
We strongly encourage all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and staff to obtain vaccine booster doses in compliance with the latest United States Centers for Disease Control guidance.

In accordance with current public health guidance all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and staff will be required to wear masks during the symposium.

The following protocols are followed for our events:


Personal Protective Equipment (PPE): Masks will be available on-site if a guest does not have their own.


Enhanced Cleaning: There will be continuous sanitation throughout the course of the event, with a focus on "high-touch areas" such as door handles, restrooms, and food and beverage areas. Rigorous cleaning protocols, including frequent sanitizing of public areas and other high traffic/high contact touchpoints, using Ecolab hospital-grade (CDC-approved) cleaning products.​


Staff: Enhanced Stay Safe training, masks, gloves, and other protective equipment for the venue’s and event employees, and daily health checks.


Enhanced Meeting & Event Space Protocols: Room set-ups with appropriate physical distancing, removal of non-essential items, enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols, and modified food & beverage offerings, including single-serve items.


Distancing: We will follow a 3-foot radial distance / 6-feet of physical distance per person. Session rooms, lounges, table rounds, and seating areas will be arranged to ensure social distancing. Elevators and Restrooms will have capacity controls.


Sponsor Displays: Sanitizer will be distributed to disinfect any display surfaces throughout the day and to use regularly for personal sanitization.
