COVID-19 Policy

We are excited to welcome you to Santa Monica and are working hard to maintain your health and safety during this in-person conference. Strict COVID-19 safety measures and practices will be in place to protect conference attendees including guidelines from the CDC, national, state, and local agencies.  We reserve the right to take any and all measures in order to ensure the safety of our participants which may include, but not limited to: a mask requirement, proof of vaccination or current COVID-19 test.  Our team is working closely with the Fairmont Miramar Hotel to create an innovative and safe indoor and outdoor experience at this beautiful 5 acre resort overlooking the Pacific ocean.

The new operational standards being implemented at Fairmont Miramar and at Accor properties across North & Central America were developed and vetted by a team of expert advisors to ensure maximum efficacy in preventing the spread of all viruses and pathogens, including COVID-19, with oversight by Bureau Veritas, a world leader in testing, inspections and certification; Dr. Amesh Adalja, Senior Scholar at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Security & fellow with the Infectious Diseases Society of America; and Ruth Petran, Ph.D., CFS, Senior Corporate Scientist, Food Safety and Public Health, for Ecolab, global leaders in cleaning and hygiene, and trusted advisors to the CDC.
