COVID-19 Update & Information
LAST UPDATED: 09/07/2021
IPMI is continuing to assess evolving public health guidance regarding large gatherings and is diligently planning to ensure the comfort and safety of all Institute guests for our upcoming 2021 in-person programs. Please review our updated policies below as of September 7, 2021.
Right of Entry Protocols
IPMI has adopted a “Vaccination Required” approach for all attendees, sponsors, speakers and IPMI staff members attending any in-person IPMI event. This means that all attendees, sponsors, speakers and IPMI staff members will have to provide proof of their COVID-19 “full vaccination” in order to gain access to the Institute.
*For the purposes of Right of Entry to the Institute, a person is considered fully vaccinated:
- 2 weeks after their second dose (any combination) in a 2-dose series, such as the AstraZeneca, Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, or
- 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine, such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine.
Please note that attendees who fail to present a valid “full vaccination” receipt at Registration will not be permitted to enter the Institute.
Masks/ face coverings will be supplied and highly encouraged in all indoor spaces. Mask mandates will follow CDC and local mandates in indoor and outdoor shared space.
Meal Functions and Group Functions
IPMI is still exploring best practices for on-site networking events. We will work to offer robust opportunities to engage with your peers and colleagues on-site, with modifications to traditional event settings that help mitigate risks. Specifically, events may include access to outdoor areas, individually portioned food/beverage, alternative food/beverage service protocols, adjusted spacing, and other accommodations.
On-Site Health & Safety Measures
IPMI is working with our venue partners to provide rigorous on-site cleaning of all locations. All on-site health and safety measures for cleaning and capacity utilization will meet or exceed applicable local guidelines.
We sincerely appreciate the continued support of our clients, and we look forward to hosting you at a Virtual Think Tank; or a Virtual Institute, or to seeing you in-person in a safe and healthy environment.
