Health and Safety Protocols

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic has made us all reconsider our day-to-day routines, our work life, and anything having to do with in-person activities. With added health and safety protocols in place, and in collaboration with the Music City Center and the city of Nashville, we are planning to hold the Annual Meeting in person this July. Our goal is to deliver the top-notch education, innovation and networking opportunities you have come to expect and value at the Annual Meeting with your health and safety as our top priority.

We are actively working with the Music City Center regarding health and safety protocols and will post those on this page in advance of the Annual Meeting. Here are a few of the protocols attendees can expect with regard to health and safety:

  • A dedication to crowd density and social distancing standards in accordance with local authorities and jurisdictions
  • Appropriately distanced seating
  • Enhanced deep cleaning and disinfection throughout the Annual Meeting
  • Widespread availability of hand sanitizer and masks
  • Installation of plexiglass shields at info counters, and registration areas

Our meeting venue, Music City Center, released their guidelines for Creating Safe, Noteworthy Experiences that provides in-depth details on how they facilitate a safe, secure and healthy environment onsite for all participants.
