We are monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation carefully and regularly.

Our current status with regards to the COVID-19 virus remains the same: the health, safety and wellbeing of exhibitors, visitors and staff remains unchanged and is always our number one priority. We recommend that our exhibitors and visitors refer to the guidelines and protocols as suggested by the World Health Organisation and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

We are following local and national public health before and during the event as well as working with our event delivery partners to provide:

  • Public health messaging displayed and shared pre and during event
  • Strengthened hygiene, sanitization, availability of disinfectants in number of location at the show
  • Hand sanitiser for speakers to use before and after microphone use
  • Cleaning of microphones with disinfectant wipes between sessions
  • Cleaning all other handheld AV equipment before and after use
Visitors and exhibitors are also advised to carry a personal supply of hand sanitiser, tissues and wipes in and outside the event.

Travel advice and entry guidelines varies from country to country. Our event attendees are encouraged to check the latest travel advice and entry guidelines for the US before making arrangements.

We are monitoring the situation very closely and will follow up with participants as the situation develops. Please also check the event website for regular updates. If you have any specific event questions, please contact the customer service team.

Should there be any changes to the current recommendations from the WHO or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we will review and share their instructions.


We are aware of an independent hotel bookings company who is warning attendees about low availability and demanding rooms are booked via their services. Please be aware that we have not instructed them, or any other hotel bookings company to act on our behalf. They have no involvement in the summit or MA Exhibitions. We strongly advise all attendees to book their accommodation directly through the hotel using this link.
