Health And Safety Procedures

We look forward to welcoming attendees back onsite for the 2022 Innovations in Testing Conference. Throughout the onsite experience, we will have safety procedures in place to ensure a safe, exciting, and educational experience for all.

We’re working closely with our partners at the Hyatt Regency Orlando and will continue to monitor and adjust our health and safety procedures on an ongoing basis based on recommendations from the CDC and local authorities.

We will have hand sanitizer available throughout the meeting space for your convenience. We suggest each attendee bring their own mask, but we will have extras available if needed.

We also recognize the people have different comfort levels when it comes to networking, so we’re encouraging attendees to make your individual comfort level known. Stickers will be provided that will go on your name badge and will let other attendees see what your comfort level may be.

RED: If you want to always stay 3 feet apart, we will have a red sticker for you.

YELLOW: Are you okay with an elbow bump? Grab a yellow sticker.

GREEN: Or if you're comfortable with standard networking, grab a green sticker.

It’s up to you and your individual comfort level.
