The health and safety of all visitors to the 2022 ISPA Conference is our top priority.  We are working with our amazing partners at Mandalay Bay and GES to ensure we properly follow all federal, state, local and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. Their experience hosting and executing live events during the COVID era will be invaluable. Please be sure to visit this page for the latest guidelines and updates prior to departing for the event.

In addition, Mandalay Bay has obtained the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation which is recognized as a gold standard for event venues.

While we can’t answer all questions at this time regarding federal, state and local guidelines that will be in effect during our event dates, we are 100% committed to providing a healthy, safe environment for our attendees.

Face Coverings

We will continue to follow  Clark County, NV guidelines. Effective, July 30, 2021, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak mandated that everyone, including those who are fully vaccinated, wear a face mask while in public indoor settings, including resorts and casinos, restaurants, bars, showrooms and meeting spaces. As the Clark County guidelines change, we will post updates here.

Hand Sanitizer Stations
We will have hand washing facilities and/or sanitizing systems easily accessible to everyone throughout the event.

ISPA will not implement vaccination requirements unless required by federal, state or local laws.  As of November 2, 2021, there are no vaccination requirements in place by any of these governing bodies.

Wellness Check

Attendees are encouraged to complete a self-assessment prior to departing for the event and each day of the event before they visit the event space.Individuals who have any COVID-19 symptoms are requested to please stay at home. You can check your symptoms using the CDC’s COVID-19 Self-Checker.
