We are deeply committed to protecting the health and safety of you, your teams and the wider communities where we meet and do business. As a result of the pandemic challenges, now more than ever before, that commitment is our priority and we use it as a benchmark against which we make all decisions about hosting our in-person events.
We continue to work closely with the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center (DESCC), Rosemont Exhibition Services and the city of Rosemont, IL (located in Cook County) to monitor and adopt guidance from local and state authorities.
Visit Cook County Public Health to learn about the current COVID-19 mandates and requirements by which we abide.
Guidelines are subject to change and we ask that you refer to this site for the most up-to-date and official information.
As of February 28, 2022, Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker has lifted both the mask and proof of vaccination mandates. You are not required to wear a face covering at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center nor provide proof of vaccination status.
PTXPO PROTECT TO CONNECT
THE PROTECT TO CONNECT PROMISE
This program includes standards, protocols and service offerings that reflect our values and pledge to promote in-person event safety and well-being — for our people, our customers and our attendees.
In response to our changing world, we created Protect to Connect to help you feel comfortable and confident when considering face-to-face events. Make an informed decision for yourself and your organization with the information below in conjunction with the guidance from government officials and health experts.
Our goal is simple: we want every one of our guests to be undoubtedly assured that we take every possible measure to orchestrate a safe event environment. That peace of mind allows you to focus solely on the main purpose of attending - making meaningful professional connections and discovering ways to improve your business.
The DESCC has increased the frequency of its sanitation and disinfectant practices particularly in high traffic and high touch areas including hand rails, washrooms, doors and door knobs.
The Rosemont Public Safety Department, paramedics/EMT, event staff and security personnel have been educated and trained in recognizing the signs, symptoms and prevention of COVID-19.
Show management will place informational signage throughout the facility outlining social distancing guidelines, facility practices and safety protocols.
We will have a supply of disposable face masks available at no cost to any attendee, exhibitor, employee or group.
Hand sanitizer stations will exist throughout the show floor and in each of the common areas throughout the facility.
