For everyone planning to attend our upcoming events, please know that your health and safety is CEDIA’s primary concern. We are implementing additional social distancing and safety measures in conjunction with each venue and state/local guidelines. You will see adjustments including an altered registration process, various food and beverage options, and adjusted room layouts. You also will be required to sign a Release, Waiver, and Assumption as part of the registration process. We also are encouraging everyone to follow the CDC’s advice to limit the spread of COVID-19. Please visit cdc.gov for the most up-to-date guidance. Recommended guidelines currently include:

REGISTRATION. Upon check-in everyone will be provided with a mask. You may wear your own if preferred. Temperature checks may be administered as well. If a fever of 100.4 or higher is present, attendance will not be permitted.
MASK. It is highly recommended to wear a mask for the duration of the event. It is acceptable to remove mask when eating or drinking.

VENUE. We are working with the venues that host our events to employ prudent precautions. Venues will provide hand sanitizing stations, as well as frequent wipe-downs of commonly touched areas.
This will be a new experience for us all. We appreciate your support in helping to limit the spread of COVID-19 and being respectful of the health and safety of everyone.
