Health and Safety

Updated 3/2/2023

ADEA is committed to the health and safety of our 2023 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition attendees, exhibitors and sponsors.

While we look forward to an in-person conference, there is no higher priority than the safety and well-being of ADEA members and staff. An EMT will be located onsite near registration if medical attention is needed and will provide information regarding local COVID-19 testing or other health care facilities upon request.

Attendees are required to follow current COVID-19 protocols in place at the federal, state and local levels, including at the Oregon Convention Center and conference hotel, as of the first day of the 2023 ADEA Annual Session & Exhibition. Compliance with protocols adopted by ADEA is required for in-person attendance and participation at the conference. Additional information regarding any specific health and safety measures, and any necessary consents by you, will be communicated prior to the first day of the conference. By participating in this event, you agree to adhere ADEA’s health and safety policies. Failure to adhere to or comply with the safety protocols in place may result in removal from the event and/or event premises.
