Preparing to Welcome You Back to In-Person Conferences

We look forward to seeing you in person again

Here at RISE, we are dedicated to ensuring our attendees, speakers, exhibitors, and staff have a healthier and safer conference experience. As we prepare to welcome you back to in-person conferences, rest assured that in partnership with our top-notch venues nationwide, we’ve incorporated health and safety measures based on guidance from health authorities including the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

If you are not feeling well or have reason to believe you may have been exposed to COVID-19, we strongly urge you to follow the CDC guidelines for self-quarantine and not travel.


Know Before You Go

Face Coverings

Temperature Screenings

Hand Sanitizing

Physical Distancing

Face coverings are required for all attendees, exhibitors, speakers, and staff for the duration of the event

A temperature check and self-screening will be conducted upon arrival each day

We ask all attendees to practice physical distancing by standing at least six feet away from other people while standing in lines and moving throughout the event


How RISE is Creating a Healthier & Safer Conference Experience


  Touchless Registration
  We have created a touchless conference registration process allowing attendees to print their own badges for events. If you plan to earn continuing education credits, our staff will take care of signing you in and out so you can enjoy a complete touchless experience.
  Physical Distanced Sessions
  All sessions will be set up with physical distanced seating per CDC guidelines.
  Safer Food & Beverage Experience
  Attendees will be asked to minimize the time face coverings are removed during meals and breaks. Tables will be set following physical distanced guidelines of at least six feet between attendees. To make the experience as touchless as possible, meals and breaks will be either pre-set at the table or served by attendants at stations with a plexiglass partition.
  Comfortable Networking 
  In addition to physical distancing during networking breaks and receptions, protocols will be in place to allow attendees to interact with peers based on their comfort level in order to facilitate a safer and more comfortable experience for all.
  Visiting Exhibit Booths
  All exhibitors are encouraged to set up their exhibit booths with physical distancing in mind, as well as provide a touchless experience so attendees can comfortably interact and shop for solutions.
  Present with Confidence
  The speaker podium will be physically distanced from attendees, therefore speakers will not be required to wear a face covering while speaking. For panel sessions, panelists will be physically distanced per CDC guidelines. All AV equipment will be sanitized after each session. 
  Friendly Reminders
  Proper signage will be placed throughout the event to serve as a friendly reminder to wear face coverings, abide by physical distancing guidelines, and thoroughly wash hands and/or use the hand sanitizing stations.
