How will you ensure the health & safety of participants onsite?
As of February 10, 2022 Nevada Governor Ends State Mask Mandate.
The number one priority at World Tea Conference & Expo is the health & safety of all participants and our team will be working closely with the Las Vegas Convention Center on how to maintain a safe and secure trade show environment. Together with the Las Vegas Convention Center and adhering to strict CDC guidelines, we are also working closely with our vendors to continue to follow a rigorous safety regimen when interacting with our community.
In 2021 Questex hosted over 25 live successful events nationally and internationally despite the alpha and delta variants being prevalent, and we adhered to strict mandates to ensure attendee safety which have included mask mandates, vaccination mandates, rapid testing, social distancing, hand washing, venue sanitation and any other requirement set forth by local state laws or regulations. With regard to any future or current COVID-19 variants including Omicron, we will continue to adhere to the same strict protocols to ensure optimum customer and participant safety, and will enhance these protocols in alignment with CDC, WHO and state recommendations if and as necessary.
