Q. What is NCMA doing to ensure a comfortable and safe event environment?
We are working extremely hard to create a comfortable and sanitary environment for all attendees. Working closely with Convene, we will be implementing health screening and temperature checks for attendees, speakers, and staff, redesigning space to facilitate proper social distancing, providing hand sanitizer stations, providing individually packaged nourishment, and increasing cleaning and disinfection frequency.
While we can certainly take these steps, it is critically important that you, the attendee, also do your part. Therefore, every person attending this event is expected to diligently follow the well-being policies and protocols put in place for this event.
WEAR A MASK
Face coverings are required throughout the entire event, at all times, except when consuming food & beverages.
WASH YOUR HANDS
Hand sanitizer stations are provided throughout the venue. Please use them every time you enter each session room and in the coffee break and lunch areas.
No known exposure or symptoms of COVID-19 14 days prior to the event (after March 22, 2021). If you are exposed or have symptoms, we will switch you to a virtual attendee.
WATCH YOUR DISTANCE
Keep a minimum distance of at least 6 feet from other attendees (including when engaging in conversations, during breaks, and during any meals). Please be aware of other attendees’ comfort level, marked by red, yellow, or green lanyards.
WALK WITH THE FLOW
Follow the traffic flow directional signage for entering and exiting.
Q. What happens if I do not feel safe attending after registering for In-Person or get sick prior to SubCon?
We understand circumstances change and will switch your registration to virtual and refund you the difference between in-person and virtual.
