The safety and well-being of our friends and colleagues are our top priorities and guide our decisions. Exposure to COVID-19 is an inherent risk in any public location where people are present; we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed during your visit. We will be following all local guidelines, and adhering to hotel-specific standards in order to host the event safely and effectively.  We encourage everyone to be vaccinated and ‘boosted’ by November if needed.  We look forward to welcoming you in Miami Beach!
