SAFETY PREPAREDNESS

We are actively monitoring health and safety environments and will communicate any changes to our current preparedness.

We will keep some of the health measures that allowed us to make our Louisville event safe;

Registration Area

  1. Registration and information counters have been spread apart to avoid clusters.
  2. Attendees will self-scan the QR Code emailed mid-September on printout or on their phone. Our staff can also look up your name on our computers.
  3. Conference bag will be pre-stuffed and available to attendees on stands.
  4. There is no printed schedule. You can download the conference app at ADICONF. If you have the app from prior years, the conference schedule and floor map have been added.
  5. Onsite registration will be available early starting at noon on Wednesday for exhibitors and 1:30pm for attendees.

Meals and Welcome Tasting

Setting will be dictated by health measures in place.

Educational Sessions

  1. Room capacity will be limited to <80% of the room capacity

Exhibit Floor

  1. The exhibit floor will not be carpeted to avoid soft surfaces and ease daily cleanup
  2. Wide aisles/ more aisles have been built in the floor plan to ease social distancing

Those guidelines will be updated as need arise, so please refer to this page.
