Safety Protocols

We have developed a comprehensive and fluid plan to ensure you

remain as safe as possible, which will continue to evolve based on

guidance issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

(CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and federal, state, and

local governments.

We are committed to providing assurance and confidence that keeping

you as safe as possible at DHI conNextions is our top priority, as outlined


General Cleaning, Sanitation, & Disinfection

We will meet and exceed all cleaning protocols as outlined by the venue and industry associations. We will work with the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center to ensure daily, heightened cleaning and sanitizing regimen of all public spaces, meeting rooms, exhibit hall, and registration area.

The Ernest N. Morial Convention Center has achieved
GBAC STAR™ accreditation through the Global BioRisk Advisory Council, which certifies that the facility is implementing the industry's highest standards of cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention and is the leading standard of prepared facilities. View the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center Health & Safety Plan (as of 7/1/20).

Hand sanitization stations will be placed strategically in high traffic areas such as meeting room foyers and the exhibit hall.

We will create and display highly visible signage related to keeping you as safe as possible and associated protocols throughout the convention center.


Personal Protection & Social Density Protocol

Attendees, exhibitors, sponsors, faculty, and third-party suppliers who are not vaccinated are required to wear face masks and maintain social distance. For non-vaccinated individuals, masks can be removed only for eating and drinking. Participants are requested to bring their own masks. Disposable masks will be available at registration upon request. 

Registration Area

Online, advanced registration is strongly encouraged. We will configure the onsite registration areas to allow for social distancing and implement queue lines where appropriate distancing can be enforced. Plexiglass barriers may be added to registration counters to keep you as safe as possible and to support physical distancing measures.

Exhibit Hall

Hand sanitization stations will be placed strategically. 

We will work with the venue to ensure physical distancing and group density protocols are followed. We will communicate and confirm general service contractor and freight management health and cleaning protocols to keep you as safe as possible.

Meeting Rooms

As recommended by the venue, we will design distancing seating layouts to keep you as safe as possible. Entrance doors will be kept in the open position. High-traffic surfaces will be sanitized with an anti-viral disinfectant between sessions.

DHI conNextions has room blocks at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside and Hampton Inn & Suites Convention Center, both Hilton properties. Please view the Hilton CleanStay Program to learn about their cleaning and disinfection protocols.
