We are planning an innovative approach to our can’t-miss event - one that marries safety and social distancing needs with attendees’ eagerness to network and attain industry-leading education in an in-person setting.

The in-person Conference & Expo in Columbus, Ohio, is being planned for Saturday, Oct. 9 through Monday, Oct. 11, and then the conference fully repeats on Tuesday, Oct. 12 through Thursday, Oct. 14 (both conference schedules will include access to the Expo, so attendees pick the dates they wish to attend). If an online Conference & Expo is a preference, we’ll also be offering a virtual option for attendees and exhibitors.  IAHCSMM will continue to monitor, prepare for and communicate to you any safety requirements by the state, city, convention center and partnering hotels.

Current safety protocols in the state of Ohio, city of Columbus and the Columbus Convention Center require masks to be worn during all conference events, including admittance to the center and hotels. Health and safety protocols subject to change at the time of the conference.

IAHCSMM wants you to be informed to the fullest extent of COVID precautions.  Below are useful links from us and our partners on how we are planning for a safe experience for you during your stay in Columbus, OH.
