Health and Well-Being for World Conference 2022

As the world adapts to the new normal and we return to in-person events, the health and well-being of World Conference attendees remains our top priority. By working closely with Marriott Marquis in New York City and Federal, State and Local public health officials, we will incorporate current best practices to provide you with the best level of protection at World Conference 2022 next June.

Our expectation is that we will all practice protocols that reflect a 'spirit of respect and care' for our IABC community throughout the event. IABC will continue to actively monitor local, state, and federal guidelines and we may further adjust our well-being protocols if local conditions change as we get closer to the event. 

Here are 3 ways we're protecting your wellness: 

  1. Partnering with Marriott Marquis to maintain their COVID-19 protocols while onsite including access control, protocal signage, sanitizing stations, proctective shields at the front desk and reimagined food and beverage stations. Learn more about Marriott International's Commitment to Clean
  2. Collaborating with our contractors and the exhibitor and sponsor community to ensure everyone receives training on personal hygiene guidelines and response/recovery protocols related to suspected/confirmed cases of COVID.
  3. Continuing to seek expert advice on up-to-the-moment health and safety direction from the WHO, the CDC, State and Local public health authorities, and recognized health and safety experts.

Current New York City Mandates/Orders Effecting Marriott Marquis

As of August 17, people 12 and older are required to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA or WHO for indoor dining, Indoor fitness and Indoor entertainment. View the full requirements here.

International Travel

IABC is staying up to date with travel guidance and recommendations from the CDC. If you are planning to travel internationally, please visit the CDC's page on International Travel During COVID-19 for information related to your travel plans.
