As you each deal with various concerns about traveling and attending the upcoming ECPA C-Suite Symposium, we wanted to let you know the protocols that will be in place during your time with us.
For context, though we are delighted that our registration numbers for this event have exceeded our expectations and past attendance norms, this is still a small event by ECPA standards. We currently have 57 registered plus 7 registered spouses who are included for some meals.
We are increasing the room size for our indoor sessions so that attendees can spread out according to their comfort level. We will have more table rounds than is our custom, with fewer seats at each table so we can maintain appropriate levels of social distancing.
All our meals will be held outdoors, weather permitting.
Our breaks, registration, and exhibit area will be in a large open lobby that opens out to a patio should you desire to do more networking outside.
While we are on property, we will abide by the hotel’s guidelines for safety in keeping with CDC recommendations that include the requirement to wear masks in all indoor areas and where social distancing is not possible. Their full guidelines and commitment to clean rooms and spaces are here.
We will provide masks onsite and will require attendees to abide by the hotel's guidelines and wear masks while indoors—including in our session and lobby area—for the comfort of all our guests who are considering family members, health issues, and other concerns.
It is our aim to make our event a welcoming and safe space for all our attendees, while respecting the guidelines of our host hotel and the CDC.
