Health & Safety

Check out our Health + Safety guidelines for up-to-date details.

Do I have to be vaccinated to attend the event in-person?

No. In-person attendees will have the option to show proof of being fully vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus OR to provide ONE negative COVID-19 test upon first entry to the event. Fully vaccinated is defined as being two weeks out from receiving the final dose of a government-approved vaccine. If you plan to provide a negative PCR, NAAT, or Antigen test, it must have been taken within 24 hours of picking up your badge onsite. All attendees will need to comply with all on-site health measures in accordance with our Code of Conduct. Read more about our Health + Safety Guidelines.

Will the event pivot to fully virtual if the COVID-19 situation gets worse?

Because all event participants are required to be vaccinated or provide a negative test result, we do not foresee any type of closure of the in-person portion of the event being necessary. We would only pivot to a fully virtual event if mandated by the local, state, or federal government or the venue. If this were to happen, we would notify all registered participants immediately.

What safety measures will be taken onsite for in-person attendees?

We are working with the venue and local municipalities to provide safety measures to keep everyone healthy. Review our evolving Health + Safety Guidelines for current information.
