IDG Coronavirus (COVID-19) Statement

March 10, 2020

Over the last week, COVID-19 Coronavirus has become a topic of concern. Our top priority remains the health and safety of all participants at our events, including attendees, partners, suppliers, staff and others involved in producing our events. We will continue to consult public authorities and health and safety experts to ensure we are taking the right measures to create a safe environment for all.
At this time, IDG Communications remains fully committed to the preparation and delivery of our upcoming events. Should this change, we will notify all stakeholders of the status change of a particular event and update the respective website.

While the risk of encountering the virus remains low at this time, we cannot ensure a virus-free environment and so have instituted the measures outlined below.
Attending an Event
•    Attendees should not attend an event if they are feeling unwell. Attendees should monitor the CDC travel guidelines prior to attending.
•    IDG is working with each venue to ensure they are compliant with CDC and the World Health Organization (WHO) guidance for sanitary practices.
•    Your registration confirmation will include guidelines on healthy procedures. 
•    We advise all event participants to refrain from shaking hands. We recommend the IDG elbow tap.
•    Each site will include a supply of hand sanitizer.
•    Should our onsite staff observe a participant who appears to be ill, we will escort the person off the premises and advise them to seek medical attention.
•    Onsite event staff will be equipped with information on the closest medical facilities for testing or treatment.
