InfoComm 2021 Health & Safety

InfoComm 2021 Health & Safety

Your safety is our priority.

AVIXA is committed to the health and safety for our exhibitors, attendees, partners and staff amid the COVID-19 pandemic and as we prepare for the InfoComm 2021 show in Orlando October 23-29.

We continue to monitor recommendations from local health authorities, the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for essential large group meetings and events.  In compliance with the health and safety recommendations, we will provide updates on occupancy levels, PPE & wearing masks, social distancing, cleaning protocols and provide access to other important information.  While we anticipate regular updates as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic between now and October, we are working diligently to monitor the situation and provide updates.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and healthy. We are committed to a great InfoComm 2021 and look forward to seeing you in October!

Orange County Convention Center Protocols

The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) has adapted a three-pronged strategy to prioritize your health and safety:

  2. Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR Accreditation: Enables the OCCC to establish and maintain a comprehensive cleaning, disinfection and infectious diseases prevention program to control and minimize risk associated with infectious agents for employees, guests and the surrounding community.
  3. Medical Concierge Program with Orlando Health and Visit Orlando: The first of its kind in the country, providing personalized medical services and resources to all meetings and convention groups holding events at the OCCC through 2020.
