Our Commitment to Coming Back
The health, safety and well-being of our attendees, exhibitors, staff and community are our highest priorities, and we are committed to providing a safe and secure show experience by adhering to the federal, state, and local health guidelines.

To achieve this goal, we are working closely and collaboratively with our core vendor partners, including the Las Vegas Convention Center (LVCC), Shepard Exposition Services, Maritz Global Events and Freeman AV.

Our plan is outlined below and covers all facets of the event experience.
