Covid-19 Policies

Your safety and in-person comfort level during the conference is important to us. We are adhering to COVID-19 protocols and requirements set forth by the Benton Convention Center and the City of Winston-Salem. 

We strongly encourage all participants to take a COVID-19 test each morning before attending the conference and stay home if you test positive. If you test positive on any day of the event, we will refund your registration fee. 

Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the convention center, and we encourage those who feel more comfortable wearing a mask to do so.

If you are not feeling well, please stay home. Your registration fee will be refunded to you.

The Center encourages everyone to get vaccinated and boosted against COVID-19. You can schedule your vaccination appointment here:

Thank you for helping maintain a safe and healthy event.
