IDEA® COVID-19 PROTOCOLS FOR A SAFER EVENT

We all want to further ourselves as individuals and as an industry. That often requires gathering together to exchange ideas, connect with peers and generate the spark for new innovations. But in these times, meeting with one another demands adherence to special precautions.

IDEA® is 100% committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for all attendees. 

IDEA® has implemented precautions to protect against the spread of COVID-19. These precautions include social distancing, mask wearing, personal hygiene and hand sanitization, adherence to pathway signage, self-monitoring and self-reporting.

These preventive measures in accordance with:

  • Guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control
  • All applicable requirements imposed by federal, state, the Miami Beach Convention Center (MBCC), and the Miami Beach health authorities

You should not attend IDEA® if:

  • You are experiencing symptoms associated with COVID-19
  • You’ve experienced symptoms within 5 days prior to the event
  • You believe that you may have been exposed to a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19
  • You have been diagnosed with COVID-19 and are not yet cleared as non-contagious by state or local public health authorities or the health care team responsible for your treatment

In addition, IDEA ® attendees should self-monitor for signs and symptoms of COVID-19, and are asked to contact lreynolds@inda.org should you experience symptoms within 10 days after participating in the event.
Any private health or personal data that may be received in connection with such measures and precautions will be treated as confidentially as possible.
