InfoComm 2021 has announced that it will now require masks to be worn by all participants including attendees, exhibitors, vendors, and AVIXA staff regardless of Covid‑19 vaccination status. This is in light of recent recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The organisation has also re-instituted a six‑foot social distancing guideline across the show including the exhibit hall, meeting rooms, and education sessions, and will be evaluating on‑site testing, vaccine validation, as well as other safety and precautionary measures.
“With the rapid pace in which we are receiving information, I want to assure you that the team will be developing safety policies and protocols at the same rapid pace,” said David Labuskes, CEO of show owners AVIXA. “This means you will be receiving proactive communication about new protocols and safety measures as they are available.” The most up‑to‑date information is currently available at www.infocommshow.org/health-safety.
“We are nearly 70 days from the kickoff of the show,” Labuskes added. “As you can remember, 70 days ago safety procedures were remarkably different than they are today and are likely to differ by October 23, 2021. Please know that we are doing everything in our power to bring the community together as safely as possible for those who can and want to be there in person.
“This year has been one filled with both highs and lows, and the anticipation of getting back together in person at InfoComm has absolutely been a highlight for the AVIXA team. That said, as the Delta variant of Covid‑19 surges, I want you to know that we are actively addressing updated health and safety protocols to protect all those in attendance.”
InfoComm 2021 takes place October 23-29 in Orlando, Florida. You can register here.
