Health & Safety

Update 9/14/21: 

We're less than six-weeks away from SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America and excited to re-connect with our community!  This year's event is moving forward as planned with enhanced health & safety measures in accordance with local government and CDC guidance.

SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America continues to prioritize the health and safety of all guests by adhering to CDC and local government guidance. Effective 7/30/21, Clark County has imposed a mask mandate for all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated. As a result, masks will be required at this year’s SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America event. Face masks will be available onsite for all guests if they do not have their own. We appreciate your patience as we adapt our requirements to meet expert guidance and keep our visitors, partners and staff safe. 


Cleaning & Hygiene

Enhanced Cleaning


Cleaning practices have been thoroughly enhanced to ensure we are exceeding standards for disinfecting and hygiene with an increased focus on key touchpoints, including high-traffic areas, handles and rails, restrooms, food & beverage areas and registration desks.

The show floor aisle carpet will be removed to maintain more effective aisle cleaning throughout the day.

Personal Hygiene


SupplySide West will provide hand sanitizer stations throughout the event space and encourage all participants to regularly wash and disinfect their hands.


Physical Distancing

Non-contact Registration


Through increased use of technology, SupplySide West aims to minimize lines and entry transactions. Visitors are encouraged to register online before the show enabling barcode scanning for contactless entry.

Physical Contact


SupplySide West encourages sharing information digitally by connecting through the SupplySide Network 365 mobile app rather than exchanging business cards to limit physical contact. Register for SupplySide Network 365 here, and download the mobile app to your phone prior to the event!


Protect & Detect

Face Masks


Per CDC and local guidance, face masks are required while indoors at Mandalay Bay.  Face masks will be available onsite if a guest does not have one of their own. 

Face mask policy is subject to change based on CDC Guidance and local restrictions.

First-Aid


SupplySide West will have access to a qualified first aid responder for any immediate medical needs or medically related questions.

 

Masks will be required on all Mandalay Bay premises by all guests unless they are actively consuming food or beverage. Masks will be available onsite for any guest who does not have one, and safety ambassadors will assist in promoting compliance with the mask policy in an effort to continue to prioritize the health and wellbeing of our community. 

We are also using technology to reduce the need for physical contact, for example, non-contact registration, and actively managing visitor flow to ensure physical distancing can be maintained.  

SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America is prioritizing safety by adhering to expert guidance from Clark County health officials. Given Clark County has recently updated their policies, requiring masks indoors regardless of vaccination status, all guests will be required to wear a mask at the event in compliance with that mandate.  

SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America is being run in accordance with expert guidance from Clark County health officials. Presently, Clark County is mandating an indoor mask requirement for all guests, and we are necessarily adhering to that guidance in the best interest of our community. While we are not presently offering medical exemptions, if you are unable to wear a mask due to a personal or medical condition, we encourage you to find a colleague or peer who can take your place.

If Clark County’s transmission rate falls and local mandates are lifted, masks will be recommended, but no longer required, at the event. 

Informa AllSecure is the approach we are taking to enhancing the health and safety standards in place at Informa events following COVID-19.

From exhibitors to sponsors, speakers, visitors and journalists, those who come to our events come to connect, learn, know more and do more business, effectively and safely.

The standards and practices that make up Informa AllSecure are designed to provide confidence that at every Informa event, we are striving to provide the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness, and quality.  

Informa AllSecure is based on a set of event industry standards, called All Secure.

The All Secure industry standards were developed collaboratively by a group including industry associations UFI, AEO and SISO, event organisers Informa, Reed Exhibitions and Clarion, a range of event venues, suppliers and with input from health, government, and local authorities.

Informa AllSecure is the way these industry-wide All Secure standards are being applied to Informa events. 

You can expect to see that health and safety is a priority and that a range of measures are in place to ensure everyone involved is able to enjoy a safe, hygienic, productive, and high-quality organized event experience.

As a starting point, Informa AllSecure events will be run according to the guidance of government or official authority guidance, and according to any venue-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa AllSecure events follow ten key commitments around hygiene, physical distancing, and protection & detection, with additional measures in place where relevant and practical.  

No environment or space inside or outside of the home can ever be 100% safe.

At controlled event gatherings like Informa events and through Informa AllSecure, we have put in place a comprehensive range of enhanced standards that make the health and safety of everyone who attends a priority.

Through measures such as enhanced deep cleaning before, during and after events, non-contact registration, distancing and crowd management, and the deployment of screening and protective equipment, we are striving to provide the highest standards of safety, hygiene and cleanliness, and to ensure that following COVID-19, our customers, partners and colleagues can connect, learn, know more and do business effectively, safely and with confidence. 

 

The above information is subject to change as we continue to track this situation and receive guidance from state and local health authorities, Mandalay Bay, the CDC and WHO, and we will provide regular and timely updates to help the community best prepare for SupplySide West.

 

Your health and safety is our top priority
