The health and safety of our attendees, sponsors, and speakers are incredibly important to us -- and because of that, we've created this Health and Wellness Policy for attendees of New York Product Conference. Please refer to this new policy in order to prepare for attending the conference. Some of these precautions may be more than what’s necessary, but we think it will make for a more comfortable experience for all.
In accordance with New York City's guidelines for indoor events of 250+:
NYPC requires all attendees, speakers, and sponsors to be vaccinated -- and all will need to show proof of vaccination. There are several ways that attendees may show proof of vaccination, including, but not necessarily limited to:
New York’s Excelsior Pass -- a free, digital app which allows New York residents vaccinated in the State of New York to confirm their vaccination status via mobile app in advance. Simply download the mobile app, confirm vaccination, and show your pass on-site (printed or mobile form) along with your state issued ID.
Alternatively, you may bring and show your vaccination card -- along with your state issued ID -- to the conference.
Even though that's all that's required in terms of New York City's guidelines -- we believe it's important to go above and beyond in order to ensure that the health and safety of our attendees. Because of that, there are a number of other measures and precautions we'll be taking:
In order to reduce attendee flow at registration:
There will be an opportunity to pre-register on the day before the conference begins -- where you'll not only have an opportunity to show proof of vaccination and pick up your badge, but you can get a head start meeting other attendees (and get a drink on us!).
Doors will open at 8:00am -- a full 90 minutes before the opening remarks start at 9:30am in order to reduce attendee flow at registration.
Attendees will be asked to arrive in a staggered approach according to last names (alphabetically) so as to reduce waiting time at the entrance to the venue.
In order to further emphasize everyone's wellness:
Each attendee will receive a "Clean and Safe" kit -- which will include a reusable face covering and your own personal container of hand sanitizer that you may use throughout the conference.
Although face coverings will not be required for vaccinated individuals, NYPC respects your decision to wear one if you like.
There will be increased cleaning and sanitizing of surfaces throughout the venue.
Microphones will be sanitized after each use throughout the conference.
A designated person will be overseeing these health and safety measures to ensure that these policies are executed.
