Your health and safety will always remain our top priority.
We have been working closely with the Javits Center to understand which health and safety requirements may be in place at the time of our event. We continue to monitor recommendation from local health authorities, the State of New York, the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for essential large group meetings and events. While we anticipate regular updates as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic between now and December, we are working diligently to monitor the situation and provide updated information here below.
September 13, 2021: Proof of a COVID-19 vaccination is required for admission for all events at the Javits Center. This includes all event organizers, contractors, exhibitors and attendees, who will be required to show proof of vaccination in order to enter the convention center. In accordance with New York State and New York City guidelines for large-scale indoor events, individuals ages 12 and older are required to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or World Health Organization (WHO). The Javits Center also requires all visitors to wear face coverings inside the facility regardless of vaccination status except when eating or drinking.
The Javits Center is among the safest venues in the country:
- It has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR accreditation, meaning it follows the highest standards for cleaning and sanitization.
- It has installed hospital-grade High-Efficiency Particulate Air (HEPA) filters to improve filtration. The entire volume of air in the venue is exchanged five times a day.
