How we are planning for a COVID-safe trade show experience
The NAFEM Show has always kept the experience of all participants at its core. This year, we have doubled down on that commitment and have thoughtfully and carefully designed an event that balances business goals with reassurance and precautions. Let’s explore how, together, we can make The NAFEM Show the most successful event yet.
Before the show
All of us play a critical role in safety this year, from exhibitors and attendees, to show staff and convention center partners.
Personal health choices
Consult with your healthcare provider as to your personal risks and healthcare situation. In the meantime, don’t let up on the protections that we know work, such as practicing social distancing, limiting social gatherings and avoiding poorly ventilated spaces. In advance of The NAFEM Show, be sure to pay attention to any potential COVID symptoms. Review this list from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
World-class event design & communication
We are working in close partnership with the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) and other Orlando-based hospitality partners. The show is designed to comply with the Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s STAR™ program, a rigorous protocol that sets a gold-star standard followed by facilities (such as convention centers, stadiums, hotels) regarding outbreak prevention, response and recovery. Learn more about our COVID-19 plan.
During the show
This year’s event will comply with all CDC, state, local health departments and OCCC guidelines. As you travel to Orlando and move around the city, we encourage everyone to review Visit Orlando’s thoughtful and comprehensive guide to safe business travel in and around this popular destination. Follow the rules of your airline and accommodations provider, as well as the guidance from your healthcare professionals.
We also will have a medical expert onsite and access to an on-demand Medical Concierge through the show portal. Additionally, you can expect social-distancing reminders, sanitizing stations throughout the show floor and other enhanced safety protocols in place. For a full list of what to expect at the show, view our COVID-19 plan.
In person – and in control
While The NAFEM Show and the OCCC are taking enhanced measures to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, there is an inherent risk to exposure in any public place where people are present. To ensure a successful show for everyone, we ask that you review our COVID-19 plan and follow all guidelines.
When you set foot on the show floor, we want you to be able to focus on creating connections, exploring E&S solutions and learning more about growing your operation. Register for The NAFEM Show today.
