COVID-19 Safety Precautions
For our in-person events, here is what you can expect:
Out of an overabundance of caution and safety for our guests, the Digital Summit staff will be wearing masks throughout the event. We highly encourage all participants attending the event in any capacity to be vaccinated.
If You Are Sick
If you have a temperature, are showing any potential symptoms of COVID-19, have tested positive for COVID-19, or have been in close contact with anyone that has tested positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of the event then you need to stay home and request a refund. The Digital Summit team will not be conducting temperature checks at the event. If you don’t feel well, please stay home. Potential COVID-19 symptoms include:
• Fever or chills
• Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
• Muscle or body aches
• New loss of taste or smell
• Sore throat
• Congestion or runny nose
• Nausea or vomiting
The ever-heated debate: To mask or not to mask? Here’s the short answer: If it’s required in the city or venue where the event is taking place, it will be required at Digital Summit. If there is no mask mandate in city or venue the event is taking place, then wearing a mask becomes personal choice for each of us - and we remind you of our Code of Conduct and in maintaining a respectful environment for all. Be sure to check the local requirements regarding masks for the Digital Summit event you plan to attend, or contact the Digital Summit team.
Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the event. Touchless hand sanitizer stations will be available at most venues. By this point, everyone should know that hand washing is important in helping reduce the spread of COVID-19.
We are working with the venues that host our events and are confident that they are doing everything they can as recommended by their local health agencies and required by their management.
Physical Touching is Discouraged (Handshakes, Hugs, or Fist Bumps)
While many at the event are vaccinated and/or not concerned about the health risks that physical touch may present, we request that attendees, speakers, staff and sponsors respect a “no-touch” policy at the event and highly recommend washing your hands often to prevent illness.
Seating and Spacing
Seating will be spaced with the recommended distance between attendees as determined by the venue and its local government. We may limit the number of passes sold at each event, as necessary, to meet such requirements.
Food and Beverage
We will be working with the venue to revise how food and beverage services will be provided to minimize exposure/risk. Designated networking times with food and beverages will take place at the beginning or end of programming each day to allow those, who prefer it, the opportunity to avoid large groups where masks are likely to be removed. One exception may be a late morning break on Day 2. See the Agenda page to confirm details for each event.
