*Please check back on this page for updates to health & safety protocols surrounding the upcoming SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America event


SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America continues to prioritize the health and safety of all guests by adhering to CDC and local government guidance. Presently, the state of Nevada has made the decision to recommend, but not require, masks for all individuals, both vaccinated and unvaccinated. In following that guidance, we will also recommend, but not require, that all guests wear face masks at SupplySide West & Food ingredients North America. Face masks will be available onsite for all guests. We appreciate your patience as we adapt our policies to meet expert guidance and keep our visitors, partners and staff safe. 

The health & safety of our SupplySide community remains our top priority as we return to in-person events in 2022. We are making preparations to run SupplySide West in accordance with all national, government and local authority guidance, as well as adapting the Informa AllSecure Plan, Informa’s approach to ensuring the highest standards of safety, hygiene, cleanliness and operational effectiveness for all show participants.

 

 

 


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

Registration Process


Through increased use of technology and onsite planning, SupplySide West aims to minimize lines and entry transactions. Visitors are encouraged to register online before the show to minimize close contact with others.

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 strongly recommended (not required) at SupplySide West, and will be available onsite if a guest does not have one of their own. 


Current 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.


 

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
