Health and Safety

As we return to in-person events, the health and safety of attendees, speakers and staff is the highest priority.  We are working closely with our hotel partners to ensure all federal, state and local guidelines are met as we organize this event.

We will continue to monitor these guidelines and will provide updates on this webpage.

  • Masks and hand sanitizer will be available at the registration desk and throughout the main areas of the hotel.
