An update on DHI conNextions in New Orleans:
Hurricane Ida update 9/28/21:
Fortunately, the city of New Orleans made a quick recovery. The flood protection system designed after Katrina worked exactly as planned for New Orleans. While neighboring parishes have a much longer road to recovery and our hearts are with them, Orleans parish has bounced back quickly. The biggest challenge in New Orleans was power outages and power has been completely restored for weeks now.
With all Covid safety protocols in place, the city of New Orleans is open and ready to host events of all sizes, including DHI conNextions! The city is looking forward to our arrival and can't wait to show you hospitality like you've never seen before.
We couldn't be more thrilled to bring the door and hardware community back together again, in-person, next month! As we're putting the final touches on plans for a safe and successful convention it's important for you to know that attending business events, like DHI conNextions, is actually very safe. Recent data and forecasting models show that on average, business events have an 80% vaccination rate and that the risk of Covid infection is 8 times less than the metro area where they are being held. Take a moment to review our comprehensive health and safety guidelines for more information on safety protocols in place at DHI conNextions.
Regarding the city of New Orleans' safety protocols, proof of vaccination or negative Covid test is not required at the convention center, hotels or our After Party venue, making it very convenient for you to attend. However, a proof of one-dose vaccine or negative PCR covid test is required to dine at restaurants, bars and gyms. For establishments that offer take-out/carryout or 'grab and go', it is our understanding that proof of vaccination or negative Covid test is not required.
Get ready to feel the excitement of reuniting with colleagues, partners and suppliers in one of the country's most fun and culturally-rich cities. We look forward to seeing you in the Big Easy!
