Your safety is our priority!

Page updated on February 10, 2022

ISPA EXPO is preparing to head to Orlando for a live, in-person event March 8-10, 2022, where we remain focused on the latest product innovations and education to advance your career and opportunities to grow your network.  Your health and safety are a priority at ISPA EXPO. We have been adapting our plans based on new and evolving information through the recommendations of Orange County, the state of Florida and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

To promote the safety and well-being of everyone involved, ISPA EXPO will require all participants to either be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or show proof of a negative COVID-19 test administered no more than 2 days prior to arrival. For purposes of its protocols, ISPA EXPO utilizes the Centers for Disease and Prevention Control’s definition of fully vaccinated.

We will continue to evaluate and expand our COVID-19 protocols as best practices and applicable legal requirements evolve and will update this page as those protocols change so you know what to expect when you arrive in Orlando.

Thank you in advance for helping to keep our community safe and healthy. We are committed to a great ISPA EXPO 2022 and look forward to seeing you in person!

  • We encourage exhibitors and attendees to use social distancing practices whenever possible.
  • The use of electronic lead retrieval/digital information sharing will be encouraged.
  • Regular hand-washing with soap and water will be encouraged with signage throughout the OCCC.
  • Appropriate hand-washing facilities and additional sanitization stations will be provided at all entry points and at high contact public areas.
  • We encourage everyone to adopt a non-contact greeting to maintain social distancing recommendations.

The Orange County Convention Center (OCCC) has hosted over 100 face-to-face events since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has been used as a benchmark for events around the country given its detailed Recovery and Resiliency Guidelines, GBAC Star reaccreditation, pioneering collaboration with Orlando Health, and its detailed planning efforts with each event.

Orange County Convention Center Guidelines require all convention center employees in public facing positions to be fully vaccinated and follow InfoComm mask guidelines.

The OCCC has adopted a three-pronged strategy to prioritize your health and safety:

  • OCCC Operational Procedures and Guidelines: Developed in consultation with Orange County’s Health Department, these data-driven guidelines provide a framework to prevent risk and protect clients, guests and attendees.
  • Global Biorisk Advisory Council (GBAC) STAR Accreditation: The OCCC was one of the first convention centers to receive the Global Biorisk Advisory Council® (GBAC) STAR™ accreditation on outbreak prevention, response and recovery. Recognized as the gold standard of safe venues, the OCCC is one of the largest venues in the nation to receive the GBAC STAR™ accreditation.  This enables the OCCC to establish and maintain a comprehensive cleaning, disinfection, and infectious diseases prevention program to control and minimize risk associated with infectious agents for employees, guests, and the surrounding community.
  • Medical Concierge Program with Orlando Health and Visit Orlando: The first of its kind in the country, providing personalized medical services and resources to all meetings and convention groups holding events at the OCCC.
