Cleaning and Hygiene
The LVCC was awarded the Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR facility accreditation by ISSA, the world’s leading trade association for the cleaning industry. Considered the gold standard for safe facilities, the GBAC program was designed to control the risks associated with infectious agents, including the virus responsible for COVID-19.
Under Informa AllSecure standards, IWCE Expo will facilitate cleaning and hygiene through the following processes:
Enhanced, deep cleaning before, during, and after the event will take place, working with the LVCC to ensure the highest standards of hygiene and cleanliness.
This includes continuous sanitization throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms, and food and beverage areas.
Increased Air Circulation
The Las Vegas Convention Center’s HVAC systems have been converted to MERV-13 filters and maximize outside (fresh) air up to 100% as environmental conditions permit. The LVCC’s HVAC system will remain running 24-hours a day throughout the course of the event.
Under Informa AllSecure standards, IWCE will facilitate physical distancing through the following processes:
CDC Best Practices
We encourage all attendees and exhibitors to follow these CDC best practices for everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of illness:
How we can all help:
- Wash hands frequently
- Test for Covid-19 within 24 hours prior to entering the event venue
- Respect the personal space and comfort levels of others
- Do not attend if you are not feeling well
Q. What will capacity look like for the in-person event?
A. There are no capacity limits other than standard fire marshal regulations.
Q. Will IWCE limit attendance?
A. It is possible that IWCE Expo will be required to limit attendance to ensure proper distancing is maintained and locally mandated capacity limits are adhered to. It is recommended you secure your registration now if you know you’d like to attend in person.
Q. What health measures are IWCE taking to ensure a safe environment on-site?
A. IWCE is working closely with local health authorities and the LVCC to provide a safe and healthy experience for all IWCE Expo participants. On-site testing, recommended mask wearing, social distancing, contactless features, enhanced venue sanitization and capacity limits are a few of the measures we’re employing.
Q. What type of face mask is required?
A. IWCE will not require that face masks be worn. The State of Nevada recommends indoor masking for all unvaccinated patrons. The CDC recommends wearing masks with two or more layers of washable, breathable fabric, that completely cover your nose and mouth, fit snugly against the sides of your face and don't have gaps, have a nose wire to prevent air from leaking out of the top of the mask. Gaiters and face shields will not be acceptable forms of face masks at the IWCE Expo.
Q. Will food be served and what will that look like?
A. Food service will be available. We are partnering with LVCC to provide a wide-ranging menu that meets the needs of our participants. Food service may look a little different this year, to adhere to safety measures
