InfoComm issues new health and safety protocols as show returns to Orlando

InfoComm invites the professional AV industry to return this October to Orlando to get back to business and celebrate the industry’s resiliency. Event organizers are regularly monitoring the spread of the COVID‑19 Delta variant and are putting into place a comprehensive plan that prioritizes health and safety for all that attend.

InfoComm organizers recently shared that regardless of vaccination status, masks would be required for all, as well as six‑foot social distancing is recommended across the Orange County Convention Center and InfoComm events. Over the past several weeks they have also worked to finalize additional protocols that will maximize the health and safety of all in attendance through guidance from both local and national health authorities including Orlando Health, the Florida Department of Health, and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

InfoComm has updated its health and safety protocols to require that all who attend the show must provide one of the following: (i) proof of a negative COVID‑19 test result OR (ii) proof of full vaccination.

Event organizers will continue to monitor guidelines and will follow applicable federal, state, and local laws, adapting their protocols accordingly. They will share updates and details on implementation and other safety measures under consideration. Visit www.infocommshow.org/health-safety for updates.

Multiple indicators show a strong eagerness among the InfoComm show community to return in person, including a high percentage of those who are or intend to be vaccinated, as well as steady attendee registration. Organizers respectively acknowledge some important members of the professional AV community will not be able to participate this year.

InfoComm is also excited to announce its virtual program which will live stream October 27‑29 from the InfoComm 2021 in‑person event, which will feature the InfoComm Morning Show, sessions from the Technology Innovation Stage and a daily Wrap‑Up Show. All will be announced soon.
