International PSP Expo/DeckExpo Implements New Safety Protocols

Deckexpo

The PSP Expo/DeckExpo may appear a bit different, as organizers will be implementing a set of standards to employ the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and quality. These measures are in addition to advice from government and local authorities and the seven-point safety plan from the Mandalay Bay.

For a health and safety-minded event, the following standards will be in place:

  • Enhanced cleaning: Public, high-traffic areas of the Mandalay Bay Convention Center will undertake enhanced, deep cleaning before, during and after the PSP Expo/DeckExpo. This includes continuous sanitization throughout the course of an event, with a focus on high-touch areas such as door handles, restrooms and food and beverage areas.
  • Non-contact registration: We'll have a system that facilitates non-contact registration and badge pick-up for participants.
  • Limited physical contact: We are requesting that participants avoid physical contact, such as handshakes and embraces, promoting alternative ways to greet business partners. The exchange of printed materials, such as business cards and sales brochures, is discouraged, with digital alternatives recommended. Exhibitors can use their Media Package to upload videos, PDFs and more to their listing.
  • First aid: All event participants will have access to a qualified EMT and a separate quarantine area.
  • Adapted conference rooms & sessions: We're revising seating arrangements and set-up in conference and meeting rooms, to enable greater space between seats. We're also working on solutions to avoid the sharing of equipment, like computers and microphones.

Registration will be live for attendees in mid-July, with exhibitor registration to follow a few weeks after. In the instance the event is canceled as a result of COVID-19, attendees and exhibitors alike can be assured the following flexibilities:

  • Exhibitors will choose to be refunded or have their payment applied to the 2021 event in Dallas.
  • All conference and expo registrants will be fully refunded.
  • If hotel accommodations are booked through the show's official vendor, OnPeak, participants will receive a full refund.
