Our COVID-19 plan

The NAFEM Show is taking every precaution to ensure a safe and productive experience for our attendees, exhibitors and team. We are working closely with the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC), Orlando hospitality leaders and all of our show partners to create a health and safety plan that meets all CDC, state, local and building guidelines. As news on the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, continue to check this page for our latest resources and safety measures.

The OCCC is leading the way in providing a safe event space for everyone. Not only have they achieved a Global Biorisk Advisory Council’s (GBAC) Star Accreditation, but they also have a new medical partnership with Orlando Health. Below are some of the general health and safety guidelines you can expect at The NAFEM Show:

  • Daily cleaning and sanitization of public spaces and high-touch areas like door handles, restrooms, elevators, ATMs, etc.
  • Signage with health, hygiene and physical distancing reminders around the convention center.
  • Hand sanitizers and hand wash stations at entrances or high-contact areas.
  • For more details, visit the OCCC’s frequently asked questions.

We are working closely with the OCCC, Orlando hospitality leaders and other show partners to ensure our show complies with the latest recommendations and safety procedures from the CDC, state of Florida and city of Orlando.

Also, members of The NAFEM Show team are GBAC-Trained Technician certified in infection and contamination control measures to ensure a safe event during the ongoing pandemic. We’re making sure all the right measures are in place, including proper cleaning, disinfection and infectious disease prevention. As conditions and recommendations change, we’ll adjust our plan to best meet the needs of our industry.
