HEALTH + SAFETY PLAN AT HCD 2021

Updated October 6, 2021

Healthcare Design Expo + Conference is excited to welcome back healthcare design professionals to the ultimate networking, education, and product-sourcing event. Our team is committed to creating an event experience where our customers, partners, and employees can safely and effectively conduct business.

Read on to find out what health measures we have in place and how you too will play a role in moving business forward safely.

BEFORE YOU ARRIVE

Have you completed a self-assessment, and are you symptom-free? If you feel sick, please stay home. You can refer to the CDC’s COVID-19 Self-Checker reference guide for any questions on symptoms by clicking here.

→ Check your flight and travel arrangements.

→ Have your digital or print registration confirmation ready when you arrive. The more prepared you are, the faster entry will be.

We are implementing new face mask requirements, per current CDC guidelines. Specifically:

→ All persons who are not fully vaccinated must wear a face mask at all times

→ All persons who are fully vaccinated are encouraged but not required to wear masks.

• Masks will also be provided at the event, if needed. 

We have an open line of communication in place with the facility, hotel partners, and local health officials.

Before the doors open, we will conduct inspections to ensure the venue is safe, clean and ready for business!
